Attendance Procedures

Report all student absences to 918-925-1420 or 918-925-1422

Regular attendance is a prerequisite to proper educational advancement. Irregular attendance can lead to inferior work or even failure. The law requiring children to attend school states that it is the duty of the parent/guardian to notify the school of the cause of any absence of a school-age child. If a child is absent without a valid excuse more than four days within a four-week period, the school can turn the parent/guardian name over to the District Attorney for prosecution. This law is for the benefit of the students. Students must be in attendance for at least two hours in the morning or afternoon to be recorded as present for a half day. 

TPS Board Policy 2206, Admission of District Transfer Students, states that students must follow approved board policy for attendance. Students attending elementary or secondary schools are required to be in attendance a minimum of ninety percent of the instructional time. Students not in compliance with the attendance policy may have their transfer revoked at the end of the school year. All excused and unexcused absences will be taken into consideration in calculating a student’s attendance.

If a student must miss school, the parent/guardian must call the school between 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. and give the reason why the student was absent. The Carver Middle School phone number is 918-925-1420 or 918-925-1422. Absences must be reported daily to the office by a phone call or note from the student’s parent/guardian. Doctor and/or dentist notes must be turned in to the office within 48 hours of the appointment to be excused.

Early Pick Up

Make sure your school has the accurate list of persons approved for picking up your child from school.

All requests to leave the building while school is in session must be cleared through the office. Leaving school without permission is classified as truancy. Students may not leave school because of illness without the permission of the school nurse or member of the administrative staff and students must be signed out by a parent/guardian in the school office. Parents/Guardians must show proper identification when checking their student out. Students will only be released to authorized personnel, with appropriate identification, upon arrival in the front office.

We use three guiding principles to make decisions about postponing or closing schools for inclement weather:

  • Time spent in the classroom is integral to preparing students for academic success.
  • Students and staff must be able to get to and from school safely.
  • Parents and guardians must have adequate time to make arrangements for transportation or childcare.

School closings or delays are communicated widely through our website, social media, SchoolMessenger communication system, and local news outlets.
