Attendance

Attendance is VERY important

  • There are many awesome events planned to reward students for their perfect attendance throughout the school year.
  • Click here to see one of the Perfect Attendance Incentives we've had.

*****Reminders*****
  • The tardy bell rings at 8:05 a.m. - any student arriving after this time must stop at the office for a tardy slip before going to class.
  • Every three (3) tardies is one (1) un-excused absence.
  • If you have any questions regarding your child's attendance, feel free to contact the front office or you can e-mail me at marthawilliams@sharylandisd.org



The Texas Education Agency requires the following:

1. On page 36, (7-4), "A school day shall be at least seven (7) hours each day, including intermissions and recesses. TEC 25.082 (a)
2. On page 31, (5-2) "State law requires that a student must be enrolled for at least two hours (120 minutes) of daily instruction to be considered in membership for one-half and for at least four hours (240 minutes) of daily instruction to be considered in membership for one full day. 19 TAC 129.21 (h)."
What does this mean for you? All pre-kinder students must be in attendance for two hours in order to be counted present for the entire day. All students in grades K-6th must be in school until 12 noon in order for them to be counted present for the entire day. All students being picked up before this time will be marked absent for the day. We understand that emergencies do occur, you will be able to pick up your child from school at your discretion but, if you pick them up before noon, they will be marked absent for the entire day.
Also, as a reminder, the tardy bell rings at 8:05 a.m. Any student not in class by this time must get a tardy slip from the front office.
Your child's education is of great importance and the only way they can fully benefit from the education provided is that they be in school all day when possible. Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.
Sincerely,
Niranda Flores,
Principal
