    Crystal Falls -  281-856-3811
    Dassey Vasquez - 281-856-3810
    Fax - 281-856-3812

    We are here to help you and want your student to be successful at Cy-Lakes High School. Please feel free to contact us if we can be of assistance. 

    Absences

    Please call the attendance office as early as possible if your student is not going to be attending school that day. You may leave a phone message with the student's full name and grade. An excuse note will need to be turned in to the attendance office when your student returns to school. If a student is absent and the Attendance Office has not been notified, the parent or guardian will receive an automated phone call notification of the absence.

    Excused Absences

    A note from a parent or doctor must be received within 3 days to excuse an absence. Anything received after 3 days will be processed as a "late note". Students who have 3 unexcused absences without notes will receive a Court Warning Letter by mail from the Truant Officer. You may fax your notes to our office at 281-856-3812.

    Early Release

    If your student needs early release, please ask your student to bring a note to the attendance office as early in the day as possible. The note will need the student's name, grade, and time to be released, along with a phone number and a parent's signature. Our office will call to confirm the student's early release before the student will be allowed to leave campus.

    Leaving campus with just a phone call from a parent is not sufficient.


    Arriving Late

    Classes begin at 7:20 a.m. Students arriving late (within the first 10 minutes of class) will go directly to their first period and teachers will mark them tardy. Students arriving after 7: 3 0 must sign-in at the Attendance Office for an "Admit to Class Pass"; this becomes an absence. Without a parent or guardian note, they will incur an unexcused absence.


    Semester Exemptions

    All students in grades 9-12 shall have the opportunity to earn exemptions from fall and spring semester exams.
