Click here to view a how to video When submitting an Early Out or Late Arrival absence request, please be sure to UNSELECT the ‘all day check mark’. This ensures the attendance office knows what time your child will be leaving and/or arriving. Campus attendance email is for submitting documentation, such as a doctors note. If you have any questions please contact Annie Young email@example.com or by calling the front office.
Exemptions - Please see this document for exemption information.

Please be sure your student knows they are getting lunch so they can come pick it up in the office.
Parents Right to Know - Please access this link for your Parents Right to Know.
Skyward - Lubbock-Cooper ISD provides parents access to their children's records via our student information system, Skyward Family Access.

Skyward Family Access is available any place with an internet connection. Skyward Parent Link
