Attendance

If your student misses school for any reason, or leaves and/or returns during the day, please submit a note to excuse the absence.

Email notes to our Attendance Clerk within 48 hours to attendance.echs@leanderisd.org.

Notes must include all the following information:

  • Student Name (legal)

  • Student ID

  • Student Grade

  • Date of Absence(s)

  • Reason for Absence

  • Attach Doctor/Dentist notes, if applicable.

Please see LISD Parent & Student Handbook for complete attendance policy and definitions/descriptions of absence types (excused, unexcused, state-approved non-absences, and medical).

Our district policy requires that any student who does not attend 90 percent of the days a class is offered (excused or unexcused) will be required to make-up attendance hours. Please see the attendance page on the LISD website for additional information.

DO YOU KNOW THE 90% RULE?

Scholar attendance and awarding of high school credit are linked.

  • Any student who does not attend 90% of the days a class is offered (excused or unexcused) will be required to make-up attendance hours.

  • If a student arrives after the start of school, the student must check-in at the attendance office.

  • Students are considered tardy if they arrive to class after the first ten (10) minutes of the class period.

  • If a student is more than ten (10) minutes late to class, the student is marked absent.

  • What to Include in Notes: Student Grade; Student Legal Name; Student ID; Date of Absence(s); and Reason for Absence. Please attach Doctor/Dentist notes, if applicable.

  • For any additional questions, please contact the campus attendance clerk.

During AVID, students learned the differences between high school and middle school attendance. For additional information, please refer to the LISD Attendance website.
