In order for an absence to be considered excused the parent must send a physician's note (if the student had an appointment), call in to the attendance office or send a note on the day the student returns to school explaining the reason for absence.
Notes and/or phone calls will not be accepted to reflect an excused absence after 5 days. This 5 day time period applies to the date of the absence, not the date the child returned to school.
3 Unexcused = Warning Letter from ECISD
5 Unexcused= Charges will be filed by ECISD
* If a student reaches 18 or more absences in one year ECISD policy states they can be retained.
Physician's Note Info.
After 5 absences all future absences will require a physician's note to be excused.
After 4 consecutive absences a physician's note will be required to excuse the 4 previous and any remaining days of this specific absence period.
Please be sure that all physician's notes are turned into the attendance office rather than the student's teacher.
