Welcome to the Attendance Office
Our office is located at the front of the building, facing West Davis Street. We are available from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm, Monday – Friday.
If you use assistive technology and experience difficulty accessing the information below, please contact the attendance office.
State law requires that students be in attendance at least 90% of the days the class is offered (excused and unexcused absences combined). Please refer to the CISD Secondary Student Handbook and the CHS Handbook Supplement for more complete information about the policies listed here.
You may contact us in written form or via email to let us know a student will be absent for the day, and if a student needs to be released before the end of school. For daily attendance information, you may call the attendance office; please be aware that we will need to ask a few questions to verify your identity as the parent/guardian of the student.
If your student is going to be absent from school for more than one day, principal approval is required. Please come to the attendance office to pick up the form that must be filled out, OR download the form below. Parent Request for Pre-Approval Absence
