Reporting Absences

If your student is absent, please report the absence to the front office of Cox Elementary by calling 817-698-7200 or by reporting the absence by email to

Once the student returns to class, please bring in a signed note from a parent, or a doctor's signed note excusing the absence. Thank you.

Make-up work can be requested if your child has been absent for more than two days. You may call the office before 9:00 am. to request your child's make-up work on the second day of absence. The work will be available at 3:20 pm. Work will not be sent home with siblings, neighbors, or friends.

Keep in mind that teachers often prefer to work with your child on the work they missed when they return to school, so all assignments may not be sent home.
