Our students' success in school is directly tied to daily attendance.

Attending school is a child's first job where one's work ethic is developed.


LISD has created an attendance email address for Cypress Elementary where parents can send attendance notes and contact our registrar. Please use the email below to send sick or doctor notes to our registrar as an alternative to sending paper notes. This will hopefully make it easy for you to quickly contact the school about attendance. Feel free to continue to send in paper notes if you so desire.


Attendance Email Address: cypattendance@leanderisd.org


When submitting an absence note, please include the following in your email:


  • Student Name
  • Student Teacher & Grade
  • Date of Absence(s)
  • Reason for Absence
  • Attach Dr/Dentist Notes if applicable. ( or send in separately to the office)


    For any additional questions please contact our registrar Stacy Magruder.

    Lunch Drop-Off

    When dropping off lunch for your child, fill out a slip with your child's student's information. Tape it to the lunch box/bag, and place it in the assigned lunch crate for the student's grade level. The crates, along with the 'Lunch Drop-off' slips, will be found in entry way by the front office. This new procedure will keep our students in class learning.
