If you received our Attendance Recovery letter, it is because your child is currently in jeopardy of not being within the attendance guidelines of 90%. At the end of the school year, if a student exceeds the number of allowable absences they will be in jeopardy of being retained in their current grade level. Also, not meeting the attendance guidelines puts you in jeopardy of having truancy charges being filed against you. One day of Grade Recovery for attendance will excuse three full days of an absence.
Attendance Recovery is a special opportunity afforded to students and parents by Harmony School of Excellence – San Antonio. It provides a means for students to make up absences during the school year in order to meet the attendance and promotion requirements. Texas Education Code mandates students to be in attendance at least 90% of the total days of school. Excused and unexcused absences are included in this 90% rule.
Attendance Recovery will be held on Saturday, October 19, 2019 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. Parents are also mandated to attend attendance recovery. The parent is responsible for attending a 90-minute Parental Attendance Tutorial which will be held from 10:30 am to 12:00 pm on October 19. Please return this form with your child indicating your ability to participate in this session.
***Please note: If your student is already scheduled for Saturday tutorials, it will count as attendance recovery for that student but parents will still have to attend the parental attendance tutorial****
Attendance Recovery is offered free of charge to all students receiving this notification. We encourage your student to make up their absences during the school year in order to avoid consequences which can range from retention to truancy charges.
