Parents/guardians of students between the ages of 6 and 18 years of age are obligated under California state law to send their children to school. Regular school attendance is extremely important for every student. Good attendance habits promote responsibility and allow students to gain the optimum benefit from daily classroom instruction. Parents/guardians are an integral part in encouraging good attendance and supporting the educational program.

 

The parent/guardian must contact the school on the day of the absence to report the reason for the absence. If a telephone is not available, a written excuse from the parent/guardian must be submitted to the school on the day the student returns. In the case of a medical appointment, a written excuse provided by the doctor is requested. Students who have an excessive amount of absences will be 17 required to provide a doctor’s excuse for every absence. The school will attempt to contact the student’s parent/guardian regarding each absence. The attempts will be made by mail, telephone, home and/or work visitation. Pupils, with the written consent of their parents or guardians, may be excused from school in order to participate in religious exercises or to receive moral or religious instruction.

 


No pupil shall have his or her grade reduced or lose academic credit for any excused absence(s), if missed assignments and tests that can reasonably be provided are satisfactorily completed within a reasonable period of time.

 

By middle and high school, chronic absence is a proven early warning sign that a student will drop out.

 

Chronic Absence Students missing so much school they are academically at risk. In California it’s defined as missing 10% or more of school in excused, or unexcused absences or due to suspensions. Truancy Students missing school without an excuse. In CA, it refers to a child absent 3 days without a valid excuse or late 3 times to class by more than 30 minutes without a valid excuse.

 

In the front office, we provide parents with a copy of the Attendance Works Middle school flyer. In addition, we supported the state wide efforts of increasing attendance during the month of September. Furthermore, we place information on attendance online for parents, guardians, and community members to view.
