Attendance Matters for In-Person and Remote Students

In Person Student Expectations -We need all of our in-person students who are not sick to be here at school. If in-person students are not able to attend due to being symptomatic, or being in quarantine, then they will need to log into Canvas each day and complete class assignments. This will count for attendance purposes, as well as for grades from assignments completed and submitted.


Remote Learning Expectations - Students with attendance issues or who are failing classes will be expected to return to in-person learning. For eligible remote learners, they will continue their coursework through Canvas. Remote learning will rely on asynchronous methods - however, teachers will provide the following support:

1. Live or recorded lessons and explanations

2. Office hours or tutorial sessions

3. Opportunities for support and asking questions


Attendance will still be done through engaging in Canvas daily or submitting assignments in another way agreed upon with the classroom teacher. All teachers will communicate their availability expectations through Canvas, Class Dojo, or parent email communication. Please contact the school if you have any questions.

Arrival to School On Time - Our instructional day begins at 8:50 a.m. So students do not miss important instruction, we ask that if they are a car rider or walker, they arrive to campus before 8:50 a.m. If your child will eat breakfast in the cafeteria, arrival by 8:30 a.m. will ensure they have plenty of time to eat and get to class before instruction begins at 8:50 a.m. Tardies are recorded for students who arrive without a doctor's note after 8:50 a.m.


Dropping Off Items- Please note, lunches or items left at home may not be dropped off. If your child forgets their lunch, you can place funds on their lunch account at My School Bucks or they will be able to charge a lunch. This is in an effort to limit the number of people that touch an item so we reduce the possibility of exposure.


Mask Requirement - All students and staff will be required to properly wear a mask while in the building and riding the school bus. The mask will follow the same guidelines for clothing per the CISD Student Code of Conduct.


Travis Cell Phone Policy - As stated in the district Elementary & Intermediate Student Handbook, students are allowed to have cell phones on campus. Cell phones must remain turned off during the instructional day and in the student's backpack. If students do not comply with this policy, staff members may confiscate the cell phone and turn them in to the assistant principal. A parent/guardian will need to come to the school to pick up any cell phone that has been confiscated, as it will not be returned to the student once taken up.

Changing Instructional Platforms

As campuses prepare for the start of the fourth grading period, we know that some families may be considering changing instructional platforms. If you would like to move your child from remote/online instruction to face-to-face instruction or vice versa, please contact the PEIMS Clerk at your child’s campus by the end of the school day on Tuesday, February 16th. The fourth grading period begins on Monday, March 22nd.
