REPORTING AND CLEARING AN ABSENCE
In the event that a student needs to be absent, a parent/guardian should call the attendance line before 9:00AM at 925.790.2599. The call should be made on the day the student is absent. Students are not allowed to call in their own absences. Please do not email in an absence and make sure to call the Attendance line.
Please provide the following information when phoning in an absence:
AR 5113 STATES THAT ALL ABSENCES WHICH ARE NOT CLEARED WITHIN TWO DAYS AFTER A STUDENT’S RETURN TO SCHOOL SHALL BE RECORDED AS UNEXCUSED (CUT) which cannot be altered.
LEAVING DURING THE DAY
If a student needs to leave before the end of the day, a parent may call into the Attendance Line or send a written note to the office and let us know the name of the student, grade, the time you’d like to pick them up and the reason for the early dismissal. We can then send a “Permission to Leave Grounds slip” for your student to meet you at the office where you can then sign them out. It is especially important to call well in advance if you plan to pick up a student during lunchtime so that we can bring them down to the office before they head to lunch and avoid searching for them in the courtyard and MPR.
Please refer to all other attendance policies in the Student Handbook.
