  • ATTENDANCE POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

    • The district attendance policies and procedures can be found in the FBISD Student/Parent Handbook.

      Tardies/Arriving Late to School

      • Students are considered tardy if they arrive after 8:10 am. If the student arrives after 10:00 a.m. (official attendance time), the student will be marked absent. 

      Leaving School Early

      • Parents and students must adhere to the following procedures:
        • Please send an email to the Attendance Office prior to ________ so we can have your child ready for pick up.
        • For your student's safety, parents/guardians picking up the student MUST be on that student's emergency contact list and have a valid picture ID.
  • ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ATTENDANCE COUNTS!

    • Daily attendance in school is a strong indicator of future success.

      Per the Student Attendance Accounting Handbook provided by Texas Education Agency, a student is considered either present or absent at the official attendance-taking time, known as snapshot.

      Each campus attendance is determined by the number of students present at this important designated snapshot time. The elementary school snapshot time is 10:00 a.m.

      To ensure academic engagement and successful learning, all students should be present daily by snapshot and remain academically engaged all day.
