    Calling in a student's absence does not excuse the absence.-There are three ways to submit a note:

    1. Electronically   2. In-person at the attendance office   3. Email dobieattendance@scuc.txed.net


    1. An absence is considered unexcused when a note is not provided within three (3) days of the student returning to school.
    2. A note from a care provider will only excuse the days listed. If your student is out for longer, an additional note from a parent is required to excuse the extra days.
    3. If the absence is more than five (5) consecutive days, a doctor's note is required. If the student misses school for an appointment, a doctor's note is required for the absence to be excused. 
    4. If your student is sent home by the nurse, a note from a parent is still required to excuse the time your student misses school.
    5. If a student has a note from a doctor that has instructions for PE/Athletics, it is the student's responsibility to make a copy for the PE/Athletics teachers. Any note that is turned in directly to the PE/Athletics teachers that is not also given to the attendance clerk will be considered unexcused for attendance purposes.
    6. Three (3) unexcused absences will result in a Truancy Warning Letter from the school. A 2nd warning letter is sent at eight (8) absences. Nine (9) or more unexcused absences (per year) will most likely result in a court appearance.
    7. A student is allowed nine (9) excused or unexcused absences per semester (18 per school year) in order to meet the Compulsory Attendance Law's 10% rule. Absences over this amount may result in loss of credit and/or grade retention.
    8. The tardy bell rings at 8:10 am. Students will be counted tardy if they are not in their seats by 8:10 am.  Students will be considered tardy during the first ten (10) minutes of any class period. After ten (10) minutes, the student will be considered absent for that class period.
