When a student is absent, parents are requested to call the office at 214-780-3100 or email Registrar/Attendance Clerk Jamie Condon condonj@hpisd.org  and/or your student’s teacher as close to 8:00 a.m. as possible to notify the school of the absence.  Feel free to leave a message on the voicemail if you call.  All calls will be logged.


In addition, the student must bring a written excuse for the absence upon returning to school.  The note should contain the student’s full name, date of absences, and reasons for absences.


Parents will receive notification from the school attendance clerk when their child has accumulated ten (10) or more absences.  According to the Texas Education Code, a student in kindergarten through grade four shall not be given credit or promoted to the next grade if he or she has been in attendance fewer than 90% of the days in the school year, unless an attendance committee designated by the Board grants credit because of extenuating circumstances.  The principal has the authority to waive the committee hearing and may grant credit if it is determined that all of the absences were due to extenuating circumstances.  Parents may be asked to provide documentation of personal illness.
