FSHISD Attendance Policy Regular school attendance is essential for the student to make the most of his or her education. Attendance is taken at 8:00 a.m. Students not at school at 9:30 are counted absent for the entire day. All absences require a parent note. If a student is absent part of the day as a result of a medical appointment, the student will not be counted absent if a note from the doctor documents the appointment. If a student will be absent from school three or more days, the parents need to call the teacher to make arrangements to pick up schoolwork. Parents should call at least one day in advance to give the teachers adequate time to gather the assignments and books. The completed assignments should be brought to school when the child returns or when the work is completed within the time frame allowed. Generally speaking, students are allowed one day to complete work for each day absent. Students will be considered tardy if they are not in their class when the tardy bell rings. Students tardy to school must be checked in by their parent. Tardies count and will impact Attendance Awards.

Grading Policy Our grading policy is stated in the Student/Parent Handbook. It is as follows: 69 or below - F D C – B A Reports Cards go home four times a year at the end of each quarter. Progress Reports go home every three weeks following the first grading quarter and additional reports may go home as needed. Please also be an advocate for your child and check their grades as often as possible online. You can set the program up to receive an every time your child’s average drops below a certain percentage. Please sign all progress reports and return them to the teacher the next school day.
Make-up Work Make up work that is to be recorded in the grade book will be completed in the school setting. Students may also be assigned to attend after school instructional recovery if they are unable to complete missed or late assignments during the school day. The campus expectation is that all required assignments will be completed by the student. The number of assignments to be made up is at the discretion of the teacher as long as an appropriate representation of the student’s ability is obtained. Late assignments will be noted in the grade book.
