Welcome to Sippel Attendance Page - ATTENDANCE IS IMPORTANT TO YOUR CHILD'S EDUCATION

  • ****OFFICIAL ATTENDANCE IS TAKEN AT 9:35****

     

    Notes may be delivered to the front desk, sent in with your child, faxed to 210-619-4630, or emailed to khufford@scuc.txed.net.

     

    ** Remember to send in an excuse note anytime your student is absent.  Calling in a student absent does not excuse the absence - only a submitted note or e-mail from a parent/care provider will excuse the absence.  If the student spends some part of the day in school and he/she is out for a medical/dental appointment, a note from the care provider is required to excuse the absence. A Doctor's note is required if the student missed school for an appointment, for the absence to be excused. 

     

    • An absence is considered unexcused when a note is not provided within 3 days of the student returning to school.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • If a student has a note from a doctor that has instructions for PE, it is the student's responsibility to make a copy for the PE teachers.  
    •  A student is allowed 9 excused or unexcused absences per semester (18 per school year) in order to meet the Compulsory Attendance Law's 10% rule.  
    • The tardy bell rings at 7:40 am. Students will be counted tardy if they are not in their seats by 7:40 am.  After 10 minutes, students will be considered absent. 
    • Tardy students must be signed in by a parent/guardian at the front desk and recieve a Pass to Class.
