Reporting an Absence Through Skyward

Good attendance is important for many reasons.  Your child receives the maximum benefit of education by being in school every day.  As a parent/guardian, you are in the best position to help your children understand the benefits of regular attendance.

You can help in the following ways:
  • Tell your children it is important to get to school every day and on time so they can learn more.
  • If your child makes excuses to stay home from school, take the time to listen to their concerns.
  • Post the school calendar, and plan your vacations and appointments outside of school time.
  • Monitor your child's attendance through Klein ISD's Family Access (Skyward).
  • Report absences in a timely manner using Skyward Family Access.

Attendance Policy and Procedures/Excused Absences

Any student who is absent for whole or part of the day, it is mandatory that parents enter the absence through Skyward, within the 5 days.  To report an absence, please go to Skyward Family AccessClick HERE for a brief handout on how to report an absence. 

The following Notes should be given to your child’s attendance clerk within the 5 days of their absence(s)     
• Medical note 
• Court note
• Official note for observance of approved religious holy days
• Verification of College Visit 

Please note: KISD allows “College Visit Days” for Junior and Senior level students only. Students are allowed 2 college days per year of their junior and senior year. The student must return with an official letterhead document from the college visited.  Pamphlets, business cards, etc… are not sufficient.  

If a student does not produce one of the items listed above within the allotted time frame, that absence will be considered unexcused. 

If the attendance office does not receive written documentation from the parent/guardian within 5 school days of your child's absence, the absence will remain unexcused (refer to the Student Handbook). After 5 school days, the absence cannot be changed to excused. 

Unexcused Absences

Both the parent and the student are accountable for unexcused absences in the state of Texas. To help parents stay informed, the school will notify the parent if their child accrues absences.
