ATTENDANCE POLICY AND PROCEDURES
The California Civil Code requires compulsory education for our students. We require that you ensure your child attends school regularly and arrives on time. It is with your support and cooperation that we will be able to meet our goal of providing every student with a quality education and a positive learning experience.
THE FOLLOWING ATTENDANCE POLICIES AND PROCEDURES WILL BE IMPLEMENTED AND ENFORCED:
School begins at 8:20 a.m. A student is considered absent if he/she is not in their assigned seat within 30 minutes without a valid doctor’s/excuse note of the starting time (Ed Code 48260).
- When student is late he/she must bring a late note from parent.
When student is absent we ask that you do the following:
A parent can call to verify an absence 24 hours a day to extension 5020. We receive all recording messages. A parent/guardian has three (3) days from the last day of the absence to verify the absence. Students will be required to attend Saturday School for unverified, unexcused, truancy and/or excessive absences due to illness.
- Parent /Guardian may call the attendance office to verify the absence.
