Attendance (Very Important)

  • A parent must provide an explanation for any absence upon the student’s arrival or return to school. The student must submit a note signed by the parent. The campus may accept a phone call from the parent but reserves the right to require a written note. A note signed by the student will not be accepted unless the student is age 18 or older or is an emancipated minor under state law. Center Independent School District Student Handbook Page 30 The campus will document in its attendance records whether the absence is excused or unexcused. Note: The district is not required to excuse any absence, even if the parent provides a note explaining the absence, unless the absence is an exemption under compulsory attendance laws.
  • A student who is not in attendance at least 90% of the days a class is offered is in serious jeopardy of losing credit for that class.
  • Please see the CHS Student Code of Conduct link below for more information. If you have questions, please speak to your child's grade level counselor.
