Parents/guardians are required to make sure that their student brings a note after every absence OR phone the office the day of the absence. The note should indicate the reason and date(s) of absence. Students who fail to verify their absence will be marked truant and assigned to Saturday School. Students also have 3 days to clear a marked truancy.
The following attendance definitions, established in the California Education Code, will be in effect for the coming year:
Excused Absence (E)
Official quarantine by a county or city health officer
Appointments to receive medical, dental, optometry, or quarantine services
Attendance at the funeral of a member of the student’s immediate family
Permissive Absence (P)
An absence excused by the parent for personal reasons. The school must be notified by the parent or guardian prior to the absence. Examples include court appearance, family vacation, and observance of religious holidays.
Unexcused Absence (U)
An unexcused absence is an absence which occurs with parent knowledge but without prior notification to the school. Examples include babysitting, helping at home, oversleeping, transportation problems, and on vacation without prior school clearance.
Truancy Absence (T)
A truancy is an absence which occurs without the knowledge and consent of the school/parent. Students shall not receive credit for assignments and tests missed while truant. Detention(s)/Saturday School/On-campus suspension will be assigned for all truancies. Excessive excused absences, 3 or more truancies and/or tardies may result in initiating the Student Attendance Review Board process.
