Reminders from the Registrar
Absence Notes: Students are required to provide a note from a parent or guardian for each absence within three days of the date of the absence or consecutive absences. This note may be mailed, faxed, delivered by the student to the front desk, or delivered in person by the parent or guardian. This note is to include the student’s first and last name, grade, and reason for absences, telephone number of parent or guardian, and signature of parent or guardian. If the student does not provide a note for being absent, the absence will be counted as unexcused.
If your address or phone numbers change during the school year, please make sure to contact the school with the updated information. One of the following must be provided as Proof of Residency to make update to address information.
· Newly signed settlement papers in parent’s name
· Newly signed lease agreement in parent’s name, naming student as occupant

Northwest Harris County Heart Walk
The Northwest Harris County Heart Walk will be held on October 21st at 8:00 a.m. at Lone Star College University Park. The American Heart Association recognizes the significant impact that Hurricane Harvey has had on the CFISD community and surrounding areas and understands that every school and department will have a unique approach this year to their level of participation. You may choose to use this as a community event and organize a team to walk but not to fundraise, or you may have staff members and students that are passionate about the cause and want to fundraise, or you may decline participation altogether.
If you would like to participate, please join an existing CFISD team or form your own at http://www2.heart.org/site/TR?fr_id=2531&pg=company&company_id=18565 .
