Campus Parent Involvement Policy
The Campus Parent Involvement Policy explains how our campus supports the important role of parents in the education of their children. We offer a Parent Compact to establish a partnership among parents, school staff, and students for improving student academic achievement.
Absences & Tardies
Tardies, according to GISD policy, will be reflected on the report card whether they are excused or unexcused.
Students who arrive between 8:15 a.m. and 8:21 a.m. are tardy. Students who arrive after 8:21 a.m. or who leave before 3:00 p.m. have a partial day absence. Students must be in school at 10:00 a.m. in order to be counted present for the school day.
Please send a note with your child when he/she returns to school explaining the reason for the absence and include your child's 6-digit student ID number. Make sure to remind your child to get his/her make-up work. If a doctor's note is applicable, please send it.
Snacks and birthday treats
Parents can drop off birthday treats/drinks or food in the front office at the beginning of the day, which will then be sent to their homeroom teacher. Parents may only join their students during lunch on Wednesdays. This is the only day we accept parents to come in with food for their students.
You may also call the school office to confirm if and when treats are allowed on campus.
Carver Elementary offers many ways to keep parents and the community informed. Please call our office at 972-487-4415 for more information.

It is vital to keep information current. If any information changes during the year, please report to school with the changes. We must be able to contact you if your child has an emergency.
All medication brought to school by a student must be prescribed medication and in a prescription labeled bottle. It must be accompanied with a note from the parents outlining medication directions. All medication will be kept locked in the clinic. It is the responsibility of the students to report to the clinic to take his/her medication.
To support our mission of providing an exceptional education to all students, we have created policies designed to help your student have the best possible education experience.
