Important Attendance InformationPlease make sure your student arrives on time and no earlier than 7:45am.  Students dropped off before 7:45am are not supervised.

Oversleeping and/or missing the bus will be considered an unexcused tardy by California Education Code.

If your student is going to arrive late, please make every effort to get the student to school as soon as possible and before he/she is 30 minutes late.  This will help you avoid possible consequences for truancy.

Valid excuses for a student arriving late or being absent are:

  • Personal illness or injury
  • Funeral in the immediate family
  • Medical or dental appointments
  • Religious exercises (limited number)
  • Quarantine
  • Jury duty (for students 18 and older)
  • Service as a member of a board for an election (for students 18 and older)
  • Justifiable personal reasons:  this must be approved by the Principal

Examples of Unexcused lateness or absence are:

  • Oversleeping
  • Missing the bus
  • Suspension from school
  • Hair appointments
  • Babysitting
  • Shopping

If your student is late, you must sign in the student at the school office.

If your student is absent you are required to call the school, send a note, or come in to the school office to explain the student’s absence.  This will prevent an unverified absence (truancy) on your student’s attendance record.
