We are here to help you and want your student to be successful at Cy-Fair High School. Please feel free to contact us if we can be of assistance. 

Absences

Please call the attendance office as early as possible if your student is not going to be attending school that day. You may leave a phone message with the student’s full name and grade. An excuse note will need to be turned in to the attendance office when your student returns to school.

If a student is absent and the Attendance Office has not been notified, the parent or guardian will receive an automated phone call notification of the absence. 

Early Release

If your student needs early release, guardians please provide a note with the student’s name (first & last), grade, time to be released, phone number, and a guardian’s signature.  Our office will call the guardian to confirm the student’s early release before the student will be allowed to leave campus.  When we receive confirmation by phone, the student can sign out and meet their guardian out front or leave in their own vehicle.  Students are not allowed to leave campus with just a phone call from a guardian.  If the student forgets his or her note, the student may come by our office to pick up an early release pass.  At that time we will contact the guardian and the guardian can fax or email a note with a handwritten signature and a photocopy of the parent/guardian’s driver’s license for the student to leave.  Guardians picking up students after 2:25pm, without notifying the attendance office earlier in the day, will have to wait until the 2:40 dismissal bell.  Students must always remember to sign back in with the attendance office when returning to school.  If they do not sign back in they will be marked absent for the rest of the day.

Arriving Late

Classes begin at 7:20 a.m. Students arriving late (within the first 10 minutes of class) will go directly to their first period and teachers will mark them tardy. Students arriving after 7:30 must sign-in at the Attendance Office for an “Admit to Class Pass”, this becomes an absence. Without a parent or guardian note, they will incur an unexcused absence.

Student ID’s

All students will be issued a picture ID which will be used to record attendance and be used for other functions. Please impress upon your student the importance of wearing their ID to school every day. 

Deliveries to your student

Out of respect for the learning environment of teachers and students, we are unable to deliver anything except messages to your student’s classroom. Messages will only apply towards doctor appointments, legal documents, change of transportation, and medical situations with immediate family members. Please be sure your student has all he/she needs before he/she leaves for school. Any items brought to school must be left up front by the reception desk.  Advise your student to check the reception desk between classes, if they left any items at home. There will be emergency situations, and when those cases arise, we will be happy to work with you.
