Campus Policies and Procedures

Internet Use Policy

All students enrolled in an Aldine school are automatically “opted in” to our Internet Acceptable Use Policy. If parents choose to “opt out” and not allow their child to use internet, then they have to sign and return the attached form. Click here for Acceptable Use Policy PDF. form.


It is important to your child’s academic success that they attend school everyday. Official school attendance is taken each day at 9:15 a.m. Your child must be present at 9:15 a.m. in order to be counted present for the day. In the event your child has to go to the doctor or dentist during school time, he/she can be counted present for the day, provided he/she returns to school the same day with a signed note from the doctor/dentist. The child must also make up any missed work.


School begins promptly at 7:35 a.m. Students who arrive after 7:35 a.m. are considered tardy and must report to the office for a tardy slip before going to class. The adult who brings the student to school must accompany him/her to the office and sign the student in before he/she proceeds to class. Please make every effort to get your child to school on time.


The scheduled dismissal time for Dunn Elementary is 3:05. If your child’s method of transportation will be changed please send a note to your child’s teacher. If you forget to send a note please call the office by 2:30 pm. Without a written note or oral communication by the front office no changes will be made to the child’s method of transportation.

Immunization Requirements

The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) has issued additional immunization requirements for kindergarten and seventh-grade students beginning with the 2009-10 school year. Parents, please make sure your child has received the new immunizations prior to the beginning of the school year. Students need to have their immunization records updated and have those records brought to their respective campuses prior to the first day of school (Monday, Aug. 23) in order to prevent any scheduling difficulties.
