Notes from the Attendance Office:

Please remember to send in a note within 2 days after your child returns from an absence and include all of the following information:

  • Student's first and last name
  • Specific dates of the absence
  • Specific reason for the absence
  • Parent signature

After 10 parent notes, a doctor’s note is required to excuse any additional absences.

If a doctor's note is submitted, please make sure that it covers all days of the absence. If not, please send an accompanying parent note with the above listed information.

90% Rule:

Students are required to attend class 90% of the time it is offered to be able to receive credit and be promoted to the next grade level. All absences, regardless of excused or unexcused, including leaving early and coming in late, count towards the 90% rule. Llano ISD is in session 174 days. This means a student cannot be absent more than 18 days or parts of days.
