From Spring Branch ISD:
Perfect Attendance/ Exemptions/Excused Absences
Many of our schools recognize students for perfect attendance, and secondary schools have considered attendance as a criteria for final exam exemptions.
To reinforce our message that students remain at home if they are ill, we are modifying criteria for both perfect attendance and final exam exemption considerations.
- The perfect attendance timeline will now be August 15, 2019- March 13, 2020.
- The attendance criteria timeline for final exam exemptions will now conclude as of March 13, 2020. All other campus criteria for exam exceptions will still apply.
In the event your child should stay home from school due to a coronavirus-related reason, the absence will be marked as excused. You will need to provide a parent/guardian note. For specific questions, please contact your campus directly.
Scheduled Student Travel:
In the coming weeks, many of our students have district-approved trips scheduled with their peers and families. As of today, March 10, 2020, out of an abundance of caution and until further notice, SBISD is revoking its approval of all domestic and international district-approved student trips. (This decision does not currently impact travel associated with UIL activities and curricular activities as those terms are defined in our Student-Parent Handbook.)
School leaders have been provided with the list of student trips affected by this decision and will communicate directly with staff and families scheduled to travel on these trips.
The full SBISD statement regarding student travel is posted on our website.
For More Information:
SBISD has also set up a webpage dedicated to COVID-19 that you can reference for district updates, resources and information.
