Attendance Guidelines and Transportation Procedures


ABSENCES

Please be sure to check Argyle Intermediate School Attendance Policies in our Student Handbook for more details.  Here are a few reminders:

  • Reporting Absences – Please email awilliams@argyleisd.com or call 940-464-5100.  You can leave a message if you do not get an answer.  We will still need a doctor’s or handwritten note/email to excuse the absence.
    • Official attendance is taken every day at 9:30 A.M., which is during the second instructional hour as required by state rule.
    • Documentation- **Please provide a doctor’s or handwritten note to the office within 3 days of absence for it to be excused.  In the handwritten note, please include student’s first/last name, date(s) of absence and your name.
  • If your student misses during attendance time (9:30am) due to a doctor’s appointment, but attends school for the rest of the day please send a doctor’s note, as we still receive funding for these types of absences.

We do not receive funding for all day absences even with a doctor’s note however they are considered excused.

  • Pre-planned Absences-  If you know your student will be out ahead of time, please use the AISD form which is accessible under General Parent and Student Resources on the AISD website. This form is primarily for family trips.
  • To check your student’s attendance please log in to Family Access which is accessible under Parent Resources on the AISD website.

TRANSPORTATION AND PARENT PICK-UP

  • If the student’s mode of transportation is changing, please contact the homeroom teacher prior to 2:00 P.M.
  • We cannot pull a student out of class until you arrive in the office due to loss of instruction.
  • If your student will be riding a different bus (with a friend or due to other circumstances), a parent note MUST be brought to the office prior to 12:00 P.M.  Students will not be allowed to board a bus without their stamped note that was approved by AISD transportation department.
  • Please bring in your driver’s license to pick up your student.
