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

    • Reporting Absences –  If a student is absent due to an illness or a medical appointment it is the responsibility of the parent to notify the attendance office of the absence.   Please use the AWE Report an Absence form by 9:30 a.m. each day to report an absence due to illness or medical appointments.  If the absence is due to a medical appointment please provide a medical note when your student returns.   
    • The official attendance is taken every day at 9:30 A.M.
    • If your student misses during attendance time (9:30 am) 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. 

    • Documentation- **Please provide a doctor’s note to the office within 3 days of absence for it to be excused. You may also use the Report an Absence form on our webpage.
