Attendance & Absences

With the school day starting earlier this year we are taking attendance at 9:30 every day rather than 10:00 as in years past. If your child is not at school by 9:30 they are counted absent.

 

If your child is absent from school, please send a signed note to the office on the day they return or send an email to HoustonAttendance@dentonisd.org explaining the reason for their absence.

 

If a child is not at school at 9:30 because of a doctor or dentist appointment but comes in later with a note from the doctor or dentist’s office they are not counted absent.
