Hello.  My name is Ronda McGrew, and I am the Attendance Secretary for Hurst Junior High School.  I hope you will find helpful information here to make your year better.

If your child will be absent . . .

If your child is absent, please call the attendance office as soon as possible at 817-399-3067 and leave all of the following information:

· Student’s name (spell the name)

· Student’s grade level

· Reason for the absence

 · Your name (relation to student)

· Your phone number

You MUST CALL each day your child is absent.  It is the parent/guardian responsibility to report an absence within 3 days.  If the absence is not reported within 3 days, the absence will be left UNEXCUSED, regardless of the reason for the absence.

Requesting Make Up Work

Make up work can be requested after 3 consecutive excused absences.  Your child will have as many days to make up the work for full credit as he/she has missed (as long as it is an EXCUSED absence.)
