When your student needs a permit to leave campus:
Student's who need to leave campus during the school day should bring a note with them and get a permit to leave from the attendance office before the start of the school day.  

If a student does not bring a note and gets their permit to leave before the start of the school day, a parent/guardian must come to the school and check them out in the front office.  Parents/guardians must show their valid photo identification in order to check their student out.  Students should remain in class until the permit to leave is sent to them.

Phone calls will not be permitted for leaving campus during the school day.

When your student is absent:
Please send a signed note with your child to school as soon as he/she returns. All student absences must be verified in writing by a parent. Written verification of the absence must be received by the school within two (2) days of a student’s return to school. It is best to submit a handwritten note directly to the attendance office. However, a faxed copy of a parent’s note or a scanned and emailed copy of a parent’s note is acceptable. Both faxed and emailed notes must have an original parent’s signature (not a typed cursive font).

ALL NOTES SUBMITTED TO THE ATTENDANCE OFFICE SHOULD INCLUDE:
Student’s full legal name
Student ID# and grade
Date (s) of absence
Reason for absence
Parent signature (not a typed cursive font)


In a study conducted, Leander ISD found that students with 10 or more unexcused absences, in a single school year, were 15.5 times more likely to drop out of high school.
