High School Only:  

Students who have 18+ unexcused absences during any semester for any course, as a result of excessive absences, will receive a NG (“No Grade”) notation on their report card at the end of each semester. The NG notation hides your student’s grades due to a lack of attendance. Your student may not be failing the course, but they have failed to meet state attendance requirements, so they could not receive a grade. House Bill 5, an updated regulation passed by the Texas Legislature, outlines standards of promotion and graduation to include attendance. The school considers students who miss more than 10% of class time as “excessive, unexcused absences”. Student may correct this notation on their report card by one of the following:  

1.       Repeating the course - if student failed multiple courses  

2.      Attending credit recovery - if student failed 1 -2 courses  

3.      Completing attendance recovery - if student passed the course but failed to meet attendance standards  

More information around enrolling your student into credit recovery or attendance recovery will be released in February. Attendance is very important in ensuring the success of your student both academically and socially. We are here to support both you and your students in intervening with their excessive absences to ensure they are successful and on track for promotion and graduation. If your student is absent from school, please ensure that you bring a note to the front office. If you have any questions regarding this information, please reach out to our Director of Student Support , Ms. Jones (Carey) at brittney.jones@yesprep.org

We must notify families when a student misses a certain amount of school if you received a letter from us this week (or next) - this is a notice for your records. There are two possible actions you can take:

lf you received a letter from us this week (or next) - this is a notice for your records. There are two possible actions you can take:

  1. Provide the school with an excuse note on the days your student was absent
  2. If you believe the absence is an error, email askypnorthwest@yesprep.org or call the front office to notify
    • You may also review students' attendance via Skyward!

Attendance matters, ensure the student is present and on time daily. We understand an array of situations can happen that can prevent the student from attending, we ask that the student advocates for themselves and get the missing work from their teachers ahead of time or when they return.

School Attendance Policy and Procedures:

  • A student is considered absent when missing 20 minutes of class for any period

  • Families should provide an excuse note once the student returns to campus (the student should turn it into the Front Office)
  • Excuse notes = Doctors/Clinic documentation or the guardian can email (askypnorthwest@yesprep.org) or provide a handwritten letter
    • Excuse note MUST include student's full name, date(s) missed, and the reason for absence

Important Update:

Students are having a mandatory Advising Touchpoint with the Director of College Counseling based on building a stronger relationship and covering topics such as SAT Practice score results, Khan Academy Test Prep Commitment, but most importantly to get to know each other better when it comes to setting the students for success in class, around school, and continuing to build a college-ready mindset and foundation.

Important Update:
