  • Call Attendance (915) 877-1305 to let us know of the absence or late arrival. If unable to reach the attendance clerk, please leave a brief message and state your child’s name, the date(s) of the absence and reason. (Absence note is still required to be submitted to the office).
  • Parent Portal – Parents you can keep track of your son/daughter’s attendance by signing in to the parent portal.
