Galatas School Policies

To report an absence for your child, please call our
attendance line at 936-709-5014 by 9:00 a.m.
and leave a message stating your child’s name,
teacher’s name, reason for the absence, person
reporting the absence, and a phone number. When
your child returns from school, a note explaining the
absence should be brought to his/her teacher.

School attendance is a major indicator of student
success. Please schedule vacations during holidays,
and make every effort to schedule appointments
after school. Attendance letters will be sent if
absences become excessive. Students must be
present 90% of all school days to be promoted to
the next grade. Students should attend school every
day unless ill.

School begins at 8:00 a.m. Students should not
arrive before 7:35 a.m., at which time they may go
to the gym (Kindergarten) or playground
(1st-4th grades) for Active Start. Students may go to
the classroom at 7:48.

If your child is scheduled for morning tutoring or
enrichment, he or she must stop at the front desk
for a pass to enter the classroom area.

Students arriving to school after 8:05 are
considered tardy. Students must stop at the front
desk for a tardy pass. A parent should come into the
school with the student to sign him in for the day.

If your child is arriving late to school due to an
appointment, or returning to school after an
appointment, please come into the office with your
child and fill out the Health Care Provider (HCP)
verification form along with your doctor’s note, to
ensure your student is not marked tardy or absent
for the day.

Birthday treats, such as brownies or cookies, must
be store bought due to allergy, safety and
sanitation concerns.
Student items that need to be delivered to your child during
the school day can be dropped off before 10:00 a.m. at
the front office. All deliveries need to be placed on the rear
counter in the office and labeled with your child’s name and
section number to ensure proper delivery. Deliveries are
made daily at 10:00 a.m. Any class work, binders or
homework that is dropped off after 10:00 a.m. will be placed
in the teacher’s mailbox for her to pick up during the day.

A parent or guardian must bring medication and sign
it into the clinic. All medication must be in the original
container and properly labeled. The school nurse must have
a written and dated request from the parent or legal
guardian to administer any medication.

Your child will be sent home from school if: they have
a fever 100 degrees or greater, diarrhea, vomiting, suspicion
of having a contagious illness, or are too ill to function in the
classroom. Your child should not return to school until they
are fever free for 24 hours without fever-reducing
medication, no diarrhea for 24 hours without medication, or
no vomiting for 24 hours. If your child has been prescribed
antibiotics, they should be taking them for 24 hours before
returning to school.

All transportation changes must be received in
writing by 2:00 p.m.. You may send a note to your child’s
teacher, fill out a form in the front office or send us a fax
(936) 709-5003 with your signature. Please include the
date, your child’s full name, section number, bus
number (if applicable), and your signature. Please
send a new note for each day the change occurs; we cannot
accept notes for multiple days or with multiple modes of
transportation each week.

Students will need to plan ahead and be organized when
getting ready for dismissal. Students will not be allowed to
re-enter the building to go back to class for homework or
items they forgot, as teachers are having conferences,
planning, returning phone calls, and attending staff

When you send an e-mail to or leave a message for a staff
member at Galatas, please include your child’s full name, a
phone number where we can reach you, and your full name
in the message. This information will allow us to respond to
you quickly and accurately.
