    College Visit Days for Juniors and Seniors:

    Juniors and Seniors are allowed two College Visit days per school year. The student should receive a letter from the college on letterhead showing they were there for an official visit. When student returns to Heritage please bring that letter to the attendance office. A college visit does not count toward the absences allowed by TEA. 

     

    Reporting an absence:

    When you need to report a student absence please send an email or call Mrs. Champion. Students have 2 days to turn in absence notes. After 2 days the absence cannot be excused unless there's a doctor's note.

     

    Student release during the school day:

    If you need to pick your student up during the school day please send an email with what time you need student released & a pass will be delivered to them. Remember that if you are coming into the school to pick up your student please bring a valid photo ID. Students cannot be released with a phone call. 

     

    VOE:

    Students needing a VOE (Verification of Enrollment) can sign up for one at the Attendance Office between 8 am - 4 pm. If a student owes Attendance Recovery they cannot get their VOE until all of their time is completed. VOE's are good for 30 days. 

     

    Vacations:

    Any planned absence over 3 days requires Administrator approval. Please email Mrs. Champion at least 1 week in advance for approval. Per TEA, students are required to be in attendance for 90% of the semester. If a student exceeds the number of absences allowed per class, the student will be in Attendance Violation and must attend tutoring in order to receive credit for classes.

     

    If you have any additional questions and/or concerns please feel free to contact Mrs. Champion.
