Attendance Tips

Attendance Guidelines

MIMS loses money if attendance levels drop below a certain level.  Help keep  attendance rates high by doing the following:

  • During virtual learning, attendance is taken based on HISD rules. More info TBD.
  • During in-person learning, attendance is taken promptly at 9:30 am.
  • Try to schedule appointments after 10am if appointments must be during the weekday.  Appointments after school or on the weekends are best.
  • Always turn in a doctor’s note to the front desk after attending appointments.
  • Please do not schedule trips during school days if possible.

When to Keep Your Child at Home

A child should stay home if he or she…

  • has a fever over 100 degrees F.
  • has had a fever within the previous 24 hours (not counting any time on a fever-reducing medication).
  • has had vomiting or diarrhea within the previous 24 hours (not counting time on anti-diarrheal medication).

Keep an eye on health guidelines from the district for ongoing updates.
