Welcome to La Grange Middle School. I am the attendance clerk for LMS. If you have any questions please call 979-968-4747 or email email@example.com and I will be glad to help. Regular attendance is critical to your child's success in school. Of course, there are times when children are sick or have other legitimate reasons for being absent from school. Regardless of the age of your child, if they are sick and will not be at school that day, you should call the school office to let them know of the absence. Whenever a child is absent from school for any reason, they should bring a note signed by you, the parent, explaining the reason for the child's absence when they returns to school.
