Buckalew Attendance Policy
Regular attendance is very important. Every day is packed with learning and valuable instruction that cannot be reproduced at home. State law requires that children miss no more than 10% (18 days) of the school year.
When your child will be absent, please call the school attendance line (281-465-3410) or email Jayne Bull (firstname.lastname@example.org) to explain the reason for their absence.
Please remember that attendance is recorded at 9:00 a.m. each day. If your child is absent at 9:00 a.m. due to a doctor’s appointment, he/she will be counted present if you bring your child back to school on the same day with a doctors statement that verifies the appointment.
Following an absence, please send a note explaining the reason for your child’s absence. If your child will be out for an extended period of time, please let us know.
School hours are from 8:05 a.m. to 3:10 p.m. The tardy bell rings at 8:05 a.m. and students will be counted tardy if they are not in their classroom at that time.
