What to do if you are absent

From the SBISD Student Handbook:

  • Students must be present 90% of the year to be promoted. Official attendance is taken daily.
  • All students not present when roll is taken are counted absent.
  • Students will be considered absent from class if they miss more than 15 minutes of the class period.



  • Check Canvas for assignments.
  • Spring Branch ISD allows you as many school days as the number of excused absences to make up work once you return to school. Click here for the SBISD-approved list of excused absence types (page H-5).
  • If you are well enough at home to work on the assignments and turn them in through Canvas, you may. Your teachers will not have Zoom sessions during class time.
