Rogers Middle School Attendance-At-A-Glance

  • Below you will find a quick overview of the Rogers Middle School Attendance policies, but it is highly recommended that parents review the Rogers Middle School Student Handbook which is located on the Rogers website (go to, click on the “Schools” tab, click on “Rogers Middle School”, click on the “Our Parents” tab, and click on “Student Handbook / Code of Conduct / Dress and Grooming”) to become familiar with the Attendance policy.

    Parents must notify the school the morning their child will be absent. You may call the school at 469-219-2151 and leave a message on the Attendance line, or you may email the Attendance Clerk. The Attendance Clerk will call a student’s parent if the parent has not notified the school regarding the

    When a student returns from an absence, a signed parent note or doctor’s note explaining the reason for the absence must be sent to the school within 2 days of the absence. The phone call or email that a parent sent notifying the school on the morning the student was absent does not qualify as an absence note.

    Parent’s Note after an Absence
    On the day a student is absent; parents should call or e-mail the attendance clerk. Upon the student returning to school— the student must bring a note signed by the parent that describes the reason for the absence within two days of the absence or the absence will be unexcused. A parent e-mail sent directly to the attendance clerk describing the reason for the absence will also be accepted if received within two days of the absence. A note signed by the student, even with the parent’s permission, will not be accepted unless the student is 18 or older.”

    Parents will be allowed to write a total of only 5 absence notes during the school year. Once you have exceeded this maximum, all absences will be
    considered unexcused. A list of acceptable absences (those that will be excused) is listed on page 13 of the Student Handbook.

    If a student is absent for more than 5 consecutive days due to illness, a parent note will not be accepted. A statement from a doctor or medical clinic explaining the reason for the absence must accompany the student upon their return to school. If your child leaves during the day for a doctor or dentist appointment, a doctor’s note must be brought back on the same day in order for the absence(s) to be considered “medical."
