New Attendance Notification

Huntsville ISD has a new and updated system for notifying parents that includes letters sent by mail when students have been absent from school, regardless if absences are excused or unexcused. We are committed to student learning and school attendance is fundamental in giving all students the best opportunity to succeed. We are making a commitment to notify parents on a regular basis starting when students have 3 or more days of unexcused absences AND when a student accumulates a total of 5 or more excused absences. At 10 absences a doctor’s note will be required to excuse further absences. Please understand that these notifications are part of the process of our working together with you to address attendance issues and questions. If you receive these letters, we pledge to work with you to find solutions and resources to address attendance issues and discuss what may occur if unexcused or excessive absences continue. Please remember, any unverified absence must be cleared within 72 hours or the absences will be unexcused.
