Drop-Off Information
Students may enter the building at 7:50 a.m. and go immediately to class to prepare for the day. If students are eating breakfast, they may go to the cafeteria between 7:45 a.m. and 8:10 a.m. We are no longer having students wait in the cafeteria to go to class. We are trying to teach students good habits such as being on time and being ready to work to encourage this for their job one day.

Parent Link

The Parent Link automated calling system will initiate a phone call to the parent or guardian's "primary" phone number on file for any student reported absent. Calls will be made daily. Therefore, the parent or guardian should call Kuehnle's Attendance office at 832-484-6624 by 10:00 a.m. to report the absence. Please leave your message with name of child, their grade level, reason for absence and who is making the call.

Reminder: Eventhough these calls are initiated to the primary call number, this does not excuse the student's absence. The parent or guardian is responsible for following up with a note or medical excuse within 5 days of absence to our office.

What to do if your child is absent?

If your child is absent, please call or email, Barbara Buzonas,the School Attendance Secretary at 832-484-6624 or bbuzonas1@kleinisd.net by 8:30 a.m. each day.

"Good attendance is of prime importance for the educational development of each student. When a student is absent from school upon their return they MUST bring a note from their parent or guardian stating when and why they were absent. This note must be turned in to the Attendance office within 5 days of the student's return to school. Not turning in notes can result in an attendance warning letter being sent from the Harris County District Attorney's Office and possibly being fined and summoned to appear in court. A telephone call to the attendance office can be made, but it does not replace the note that MUST be turned in. This regulation will be strictly enforced."

As part of the Stay in School Program, if a student is absent for any part of the school day, it is mandatory that his or her parent/guardian contact the attendance office within five (5) days of the absence. If the attendance office does not receive information from the parent/guardian within 5 school days of the absence, either in writing and/or by phone, the absence will be marked unexcused, and the student will be considered truant. After (3) unexcused absences within a four week period the parent will receive a letter from the District Attorney.

Good attendance is necessary for successful learning and should a student be absent more than 18 days during the school year, credit may not be given without verified excuses. The state compulsory attendance law allows for legal action, if necessary for excessive absences. A student who is absent more than 18 days during the school year may not be given credit except as noted below:
 

  • Illness of the student, as verified by a doctor’s written statement showing the dates of absence.
  • A parent’s written request for a homebound teacher.

For more information, please see attendance policy in the Student Handbook.

What happens when my child is tardy?

Attendance is recorded at 9:45 a.m. If a student arrives at school after 8:20 a.m., he/she will be marked tardy. If a student is tardy more than four (4) times in a grading period (which is 9 weeks), the conduct grade will be lowered by one letter. Any further tardies will cause the conduct to drop a letter grade for each infraction. It is very important that all our students arrive on this campus in a timely manner.
