Daily school attendance and on-time arrivals are critical to your student’s success. Parents/Guardians, please be diligent in discussing with your child the importance of regular school attendance and arriving on time. Below are some FAQs that will help guide you through MHS attendance procedures.
Where to send Parent Notes?
Parent notes may be hand-delivered to the student’s house secretary, turned in to the front office, or emailed to the student’s house secretary.

How much time do I have to send a Parent Note?
A parent note must be turned in within three (3) days of the student’s absence. MHS will not accept a parent note outside of the 3-day period. If you are waiting for a doctor to provide a note excusing an absence, please send a parent note as a placeholder. Once we receive the doctor’s note, we will change the coding from ‘Parent Note’ to ‘Doctor Note’.
How many Parent Notes will MHS accept?
The Texas Education Code states that a student may not be given credit or a final grade for a class unless the student is in attendance for at least 90% of the days of enrollment.
In order to guide parents and students through this law, our policy is to not code more than eight (8) days or parts of days as “Parent Note” each semester.
