At Killeen Independent School District, we work diligently with campuses and families to make sure our students are at school every day! And because your student’s safety is important to us, we will begin sending out Morning Attendance Calls through our district automated call system when your student is tardy and/or absent during the morning attendance period.
This call is in addition to our already scheduled Evening Attendance Calls. This initiative is in response to the safety concerns about students moving to and from their bus stops or walking to schools early in the morning as well as their safety throughout the school day.
We will call, email, and/or text the Parent and/or Guardian that you have designated. This call will go out in the morning to notify you that your student has been marked tardy or absent during the morning attendance period.
If you are aware that your student is on a field trip, on a trip for athletics, or in testing, please allow 24-48 hours for the attendance office at your student’s campus to update their records.
Please be sure to fill out and return the attached form to your campus to be sure your Guardian Notification information is correct. You may request to opt-out of receiving emails or text messages. It is vital that you let your student’s campus know any time you change your contact information. If you have any questions, feel free to contact your campus for more information.
We strive to enhance campus safety and create a safe environment for the education of our students to allow them to be successful in every class. We want to see every student show up and move forward!
