Campus Info

7:45 Doors Open
7:55 Assembly
8:15 School Starts
8:20 Tardy Bell
3:25 Dismissal

Tardy and Leave Early 

Students are allowed 8 tardy and/or leaves early for the school.  An official doctor's excuse will negate the infraction and not be included in the count.  

When an elementary student is tardy to school and/or leaves early eight times as documented by the attendance office, the parent will be asked to attend a parenting class provided by the District. If the parent chooses not to attend the parenting class within two weeks, the child will be assigned one day of In-School Suspension (ISS) or other options decided by the campus administration.

In the event that a student sees a licensed health care provider and an excuse is provided from the health care professional, the tardy/leave early will not be included in the count.  

For more details about compulsory student attendance, visit the student MISD handbook.

Below are some helpful documents to better inform you about the daily operations at NSE.
