Attendance at Klein Cain High School

ATTENDANCE

Good attendance is important for many reasons. Your child receives the maximum benefit of education by being in school every day, and numerous studies show a strong link between academic performance and consistent attendance. As Klein Cain High School fulfills our Promise2Purpose, we strongly encourage every student to attend school every day.


EXCUSED ABSENCES

Although perfect attendance is the goal, it is not always possible. Klein Cain High School acts in accordance with Texas State Law for laws governing excused absences.


UNEXCUSED ABSENCES

Both the parent and the student are accountable for unexcused absences in the state of Texas. To help keep parents stay informed, the school will notify the parent if their child has too many unexcused absences. A compulsory notification will be sent to a parent if their child has unexcused absences on 10 or more days or parts of days within a 6-month period or 3 days or parts of days without an excuse within a four-week period. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the attendance office staff at the following:

EARLY DISMISSAL

Students are required to obtain an early dismissal and sign out in the attendance office if they are leaving the campus before the school day is complete. If a student has a signed note from a parent requesting an early dismissal, the note must contain the following:

  • Student’s Name
  • Date
  • Time of the early dismissal
  • Reason for the early dismissal
  • Parent phone number
  • Student’s phone number
  • Student’s first (1st) period class with room number if known

Students are responsible for obtaining the early dismissal from the attendance office prior to leaving campus. Failure to obtain an early dismissal and proper sign-out will be treated as an absence without permission (truancy.)

 

TARDIES

Students have 6 minutes during their passing period. Students arriving after the tardy bell will be recognized as tardy. Students arriving to class 15 minutes after the tardy bell will be recognized as absent and will be directed to the attendance at that time or a later time.

10/10 RULE

To create the best educational environment, Klein Cain High School has adopted the 10/10 Rule. Students will not be allowed to exit their classrooms during the first and last 10 minutes of class except for emergencies.
