Visitors to Campus

As part of our Tier 1 mitigation efforts, students are socially distanced as much as possible at lunch. LISD is continuing to limit visitors to the campus, including at lunch time, to help maintain that social distancing. The district is continually monitoring conditions related to COVID in our community and is adjusting mitigation measures as circumstances change.

We know everyone enjoys visits to campus, particularly for lunch, and we are just as eager to return to limited restrictions related to visitors on our campus. For the most up to date information, including FAQ’s and the latest mitigation measures, visit LISD.net/COVID.

Student Attendance: Parent Responsibilities

Student Illness - Not COVID Related

  • Email Kassy Alexander, LVMS Attendance clerk, as soon as you decide to keep your student home from school. The school can accept up to 10 parent excuse notes per year.
  • You may also send a note the following day with your student, but it is recommended that you email the absence in because students often forget to turn the notes in.


Student Medical Appointment

  • Always submit doctor's notes when you can. They are not counted as parent excuse notes, but they are accepted as an excused absence.
  • It is recommended to email the notes to the school. Students often forget to turn them in.


COVID Related Absence (Isolation or Quarantine)
  • Contact the CCC (469-444-3558) as soon as you know your student is COVID positive or has been exposed to someone COVID positive. The CCC will create a Personalized Action Plan and let us know the absence dates that will be approved.
  • If your student is exposed and you are requesting a quarantine, you must go through the CCC and let them know that you are keeping your student home.


Pre-planned Absence - Trips, Weddings, Events Unrelated to Illness

  • Submit a Pre-Planned Absence Form (linked here) PRIOR to leaving.
  • Email the completed form to Kassy Alexander, LVMS Attendance clerk.


Why does attendance matter?

  1. Students learn best when they are in school.
  2. State law requires that students are in each class 90% of the time that it is offered in order to receive credit for the course. That means that a student could be passing the class, but if they only attend the class 85% of the time the student can not receive credit for the class. This rule applies to both excused and unexcused absences.


What happens if we don't follow the guidelines above?

We can only excuse absences that we know about. When these guidelines are not followed, your student's absence is unexcused and there are a few possible consequences:


  1. Per LISD Board Policy, students cannot earn grades for days that they are unexcused. That means, if an assignment is submitted on the day they are absent, they cannot make it up and the teacher is required to enter a grade of 0.
  2. Truancy measures will be implemented. Possible measures include: parent conferences, behavior plans, and truancy filing with the court.


I forgot to send in a note! What can I do to fix this?

We will accept notes up to 3 days after the absence. We provided grace during the first 9 weeks for families to learn the system, but moving forward we will no longer accept notes beyond 3 days after the absence. It is recommended to email the notes to the school. Students often forget to turn them in.


I notified the school of my student's absence, but they still got a 0 on their assignment. What happened?

Regardless of the reason for the absence, teachers will enter a 0 in the gradebook until the assignment is submitted. Students with excused absences may work with the teacher when they return and submit the work by the agreed upon make-up work due date without penalty. The 0 will be replaced with the student's earned grade. We find that entering the 0 helps parents and students recognize what was missed during the time of absence and provides transparency as to the impact of the absence in the event the work is not made up.

Starting the Day Off Right!

Breakfast: Free breakfast is available every morning to all students from 8:15-8:45 AM in the cafeteria. Students who wish to eat breakfast and do not ride the bus should arrive in time to eat in the cafeteria AND report to class on time. Breakfast will only be served after 8:45 AM for students who ride a bus that arrives after 8:45 AM.


Arrive on Time: School begins at 8:55 AM. All students must be in class by 8:55 AM in order to be considered on time. Please help your student learn the self-management skills of waking up in time to get ready for school, so they arrive on time every day. Campus administration will begin addressing tardies to the start of the school day beginning this week (Monday, August 15). Under Texas law, a student who experiences more than 3 unexcused absences (full or partial day) in a four week period or 10 unexcused absences (full or partial day) in a 6 month period, may be referred to the court for truancy. This includes unexcused late arrivals and early pick-up. Charges may also be filed against the parent in these circumstances.
