Every Minute Counts

Every minute counts when it comes to growing our Explorers and ensuring they achieve their fullest potential. To maximize student attendance, we need your help. It is imperative for students to attend school every day. We understand that illness is beyond your control; however, we want to make sure our Explorers are present all other days. The same applies to students who consistently arrive late or leave early. They are missing important foundational knowledge.

Reasons to Stay Home

  • Fever above 99.8 (can return after 24hrs fever free without medication)
  • Vomit
  • Diarrhea
  • Migraine
  • Pink Eye
  • Poison Ivy
  • Rashes (if contagious and not being treated by doctor)

Reasons NOT to Stay Home

  • Headache
  • Minor Stomachache / Cramps
  • Tired
  • Missed Bus
  • Sick Sibling
  • Family member's doctor's appointment

Excused Absences & Submission of Notes

Families are now able to upload student absences and excuse notes into Skyward for approval. Please review this video that details the process.

YES Prep Public Schools defines excused absences as absences due to one or more of the following:

  • Illness
  • Medical/dental-related, including appointments
  • Bereavement/Funeral for immediate family members
  • Absences related to the legal system
  • Religious Observances
  • Any other absence that is protected under State or Federal law.

Truancy Procedures

  • 3 unexcused absences: Parent/Guardian will receive a truancy warning letter via Skyward portal.
  • 6 unexcused absences: During semester: Parent/Guardian conference will be held.
  • 9 unexcused absences: During semester: Parent/Guardian conference will be held with student and parent/guardian to discuss possible loss of credits.

What to do if your child is absent

  • If your student is absent, notify Ms. Salazar @ Oneida.Salazar@yesprep.org call 713-967-7870 or text 832-278-1073 to confirm the absence.
  • Excuse notes need to be received within 48 hours of the absence.
  • Only three (3) handwritten excuse notes will be accepted per nine-week grading period.
  • No student may leave campus during school hours for any reason without prior approval in writing from the student’s parent or guardian. Verbal approval will not be accepted.
  • Students are NOT permitted to call home to be picked up, student MUST first go see the school nurse. Our nurse will then call home if a student needs to be picked up. The remainder of the day will count as an excused absence.

Early Pick-Up 

  • To ensure the safety and security of students, staff, and families, early pick-up ends at 3:00 P.M.. Parents/Guardians must show a valid ID and sign the student out at the front office.
  • We will NOT release students to anyone not listed on the student's profile or who does not have a valid ID.
  • Early leaves are unexcused until the office receives a written/medical excuse or a skyward submission.
  • No student may leave campus during school hours without prior approval in writing/email from the guardian.
  • Verbal approval not accepted.

Food or Iteam Drop Off

  • Front office staff will NOT interrupt classroom instruction to notify your student or call them to the front office.
  • Students are responsible for picking up food/items left at the front office.
  • Students may not share food with others at any time unless permitted by campus leaders.
  • Only parents/guardians/emergency contact are allowed to drop off food. No food delivery services are allowed.

Student ID

To ensure the safety and security of our school, it is required that all students wear their Student IDs visibly throughout the school day. All students were given a student ID at the beginning of the school year and have been issued replacements when reported lost.

Please make sure your student comes to school wearing their ID every day. Teachers are checking that students are wearing them during 1st period. If students are not wearing them, they will receive a temporary ID sticker and issued a "No ID" Demerit. After 1st period, if a student is seen without an ID, they will be issued an Auto-Detention for removing their ID.

It is a student's responsibility to keep track of their ID. If a student needs a new ID or part of an ID, their account will be charged the following amounts.

  • New ID card: $1
  • New ID pouch: $1
  • New ID lanyard: $1
  • ID bundle (all 3): $3

If a student does not have the cash at the time of requesting the ID, the fees will be charged to the student's Skyward Account and will be due by the end of the school year.
