Absence Notes

Every student absence needs a note from parent/medical personnel and those notes are submitted to https://forms.dentonisd.org/Forms/absence-note. This link can be found on our Alexander Elementary website


Did you know that from August 11- September 6, Alexander Elementary lost approximately $30,000 school funding due to unverified absences?


It is Texas Law that students attend school every day and documentation is required when students do not attend school.


Contact our Attendance Clerk, Arlene Gibson agibson3@dentonisd.org, 940-369-3510 with any questions about attendance and absence notes.

Tardies begin at 7:41AM

Parents,


We have around 20-30 students arriving late most days. We begin learning at 7:40AM and we need our students in class every minute to reach their highest potential.


Phone calls and intervention plans will begin to be implemented this week for families frequently arriving late. Thank you for your support and partnership in helping our students being ready to learn each day!
