School Starts Promptly At 8:00 a.m.

Holloway 6th Grade school starts promptly at 8:00 a.m.  Parents, please have your student here at least 5 minutes before that (the earlier the better) in order to give them time to walk to class before the 8:00 bell rings.  If they arrive at 8:00 or after, they will have to come through the front office to get a tardy slip to hand to their teacher in order to enter the classroom.
If your student is going to be absent for any reason, please call me at 903-839-5656 or email me at to let me know of this absence so that I can get it properly noted in attendance.
If your student misses school due to a doctor visit, please send the doctor's note with them when they return to school.  Have them drop it off in the front office and I will get this properly noted in their attendance.
In accordance with state law and local attendance policies, a student must attend at least 90% of the days in a year in order to receive credit for that year.  This means a student cannot miss MORE THAN 18 class periods to receive credit for that class.  We want all students to succeed and we are here to help in any way.
If you have any questions or concerns about attendance, please feel free to give me a call.
Thank you!
