Attendance Attendance is a major focus for AISD. If the students are not in class we cannot instruct them and they cannot learn. In an effort to create a system to correctly track our absences, the district has implemented the school messenger attendance calling system. Absences will be reported to parents through an automated phone call each night.
If you feel this absence is an error or have any questions or concerns, please contact Sandra Balderas, our attendance specialist at 512-414-5191 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org Parents can also track attendance through the Parent Cloud.
If a student misses part or all of the school day due to illness, a doctor’s appointment, other excused reason, please submit a handwritten note or submit an online attendance note to the office within 2 business days of the absence.
Please include the following in your note:
- Student’s full name o Student’s ID
- Dates of absence – a doctor note that states 1-3 days absent must still have the specific dates of absence noted. Parents can send a separate note with additional absences or jot additional dates at the bottom of the doctor note.
- Reason for absence o A doctor’s note is required if your child is absent more than 3 consecutive days
Attendance notes may be delivered to the front office, emailed, faxed to 512-841-3561, or submitted online.
