All students are required to have off-campus passes before leaving campus during school hours for any reason. Failure to do so, students will be in violation of school policy. Off-campus passes can be obtained in the Main Office. STUDENTS MUST PICK UP THEIR PASS IN THE MAIN OFFICE PRIOR TO LEAVING CAMPUS. Parents are required to sign students out in the MAIN OFFICE and present Identification.
A NOTE ABOUT UNCLEARED ABSENCES
At the end of the school day, any absence that has not been accounted for or remains coded as a “0” initiates a phone call from the AUTOMATED PHONE SYSTEM. This is an automated system that attempts to contact the parent or guardian at the phone number listed in the ZANGLE system. The purpose of this contact is to inform parents that a student has missed class and that the absence needs to be cleared. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT THESE NOTIFICATIONS ARE NOT IGNORED BUT ARE ADDRESSED IMMEDIATELY.
Kastner students with excessive absences may be subject to discipline, loss of privilege, and may be referred to the School Site SARB (Student Attendance Review Board).
Be aware that the District sends out excessive absence letters three times throughout the year to comply with state law. The letter reports the number of absences your child has accumulated regardless of the reason of absences. Please understand we often know about your specific situation and have no control over the sending of these letters and their content.
