Report an Absence

Report an Absence

If your student is going to be absent, please send an email by 10:00 am on that day to  If you have any questions regarding attendance, please call 817-215-0433.  

A note is required describing the reason for the absence when he/she returns to school. Written documentation of each absence MUST be received within 3 days from the date of the absence.  Otherwise the absence will be unexcused. 

Unlike elementary school, attendance is taken each class period in middle school. If a student arrives late to school or leaves early, they will be marked absent for the class periods they miss.  If you get a doctor's note that does not cover the entire time your student is out, you will need to write a note to excuse the rest of the of the day(s). Please make sure your student's first and last name appear on all notes. For more information regarding Northwest ISD's attendance guidelines please refer to the Student Code of Conduct available online.

Early Release

There will be no early dismissal after 3:45 pm. This is due to an increase in the amount of traffic, for the safety of your child, and so that any important class instructions are not missed. Please plan accordingly.
