Killough Attendance Policy
Texas Compulsory Attendance Law
This law indicates that a child who is required to attend school, must attend school each school day for the entire period the program of instruction is provided. If a student is absent from school on 10 or more days or parts of days within a six month period, or on 3 or more days or parts of days within a four week period-the parent is subject to prosecution for "parent contributing to nonattendance" and the student is subject to prosecution for "failure to attend school."
-Students are considered tardy if they are not in in their classroom when the bell rings.
-Excessive absences or tardiness can result in official warnings and court hearings.*
-If your child is absent, please call the school.
-Within three days following an absence, the student should bring a note signed by the parent stating the specific reason for the absence. Medical verification may be required.
-If a student is picked up during the school day, the parent must come to the office to sign him/her out. A picture I.D. is required.
-Picking up a student before completion of the school day will result in a part of day absence.
*Warning notices will be sent for students having 3 and 10 unexcused absences. Warning notices may also be sent for students having an excessive number of part day absences.
