Upper School Attendance Policy

The State of Texas sets the general attendance policy to govern attendance for students in

Pre-Kindergarten through 6th Grade.

The philosophy behind our tardy and attendance policy is to help teach and reinforce the value of punctuality and good attendance in the workplace. School is the "workplace" for students.

Any student that does not comply with the Compulsory Attendance Policy will be reported as truant, as required by law.
