  • Excessive Absences - Students who exceed 8 unexcused absences in the Fall or 10 unexcused absences in the Spring will have to make up seat time in either morning detention or Saturday school. The amount of time is determined by how many days the student is over the limit. Exceeding 18 absences in a school year could result in truancy charges being filed.
  • To check your student's attendance records please log in to Family Access.
 
PRE-PLANNED ABSENCES
Additionally there is the AISD Pre-Planned Absence Form if you know your student will be absent ahead of time. This is only for full day absences and not appointments.
 
 
 

AMS Guidelines and Procedures for Parent Pick Up

 

If a student needs to leave early, parents need to have their student bring a note to the office that morning. The student will be written an “Early Dismissal” note. It is the student’s responsibility to give the “Early Dismissal” note to the teacher at the beginning of the class period they will be leaving and they may leave at the specified time to sign out in the office.


Please try to pick up your student during passing periods to alleviate the amount  of interruptions to the classroom. Please refer to the “Bell Schedule”.


Please do not call or email for a pick-up time. The office is very busy and we cannot guarantee that we will have your student check-out on time.


Please do not text your student to come and wait in the office. A note needs to be sent in the morning before a student can be released for pick up.


Please make sure your student has an appointment, or excuse note every time they return to school. The student will sign in at the office with their note and will be given an “Admit Slip” to get back into class.


Please tell your student if they don’t feel well, the proper procedure is to go through the nurse first and she will call a parent to pick up when necessary.


Students will not be called out of class or given a message after 3 pm.
