ATTENDANCE – Absences
Please contact the Attendance Line each day of your child's absence at (951) 302-5189 or email
Mrs. Crisp at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
1. Student's Name
2. The reason for the absence
3. Your name and relationship to the student
4. A daytime callback number
If you do not clear your student's absence you will receive a phone call and an email from the attendance office asking you to verify the absence. If parent contact is not made, the student's absence will remain uncleared/unverified. Uncleared/unverified absences may lead to truancy.
“Excused absences” are for illness, medical/dental appointments, and bereavement.
“Unexcused absences” are those absences with the parent’s knowledge, which are not listed above, such as a family trip, babysitting, inclement weather, or court appearance, etc.
“Truancy” is an absence without parent knowledge or consent and absences which are not cleared by a parent/guardian within a reasonable time.
ATTENDANCE – Doctor/Dentist Notes
It is recommended that you ask for a Doctor note each time your student misses school due to an appointment.
Doctor's notes are required to excuse illness absences of 3 or more consecutive days.
If a student is out sick 14 days or more in a school year, a Doctor's note is required for each illness absence.
ATTENDANCE - Tardies
Students are to report to the attendance office if they arrive after the 8:15 am bell rings, (9:15 on late-start Mondays).
Students arriving over 30 minutes late to school should be accompanied by a parent. If the parent cannot come into school to sign them in, a note is required. If a student is 30 minutes or more late, without a note or parent sign in, they may be considered as truant.
Students who have reoccurring tardies will have disciplinary consequences. If a student has 5 or more tardies in a given period they will be assigned a 3-day lunch detention. Excessive tardies throughout the semester, to multiple periods, will also result in disciplinary consequences.
ATTENDANCE – Homework
When a student is unable to come to school, homework can usually be found on the teacher’s individual websites.
It is the student’s responsibility upon returning to school to ask teachers for make-up work.
After 3 consecutive absences, a formal homework request may be made through the front office. Teachers will have 24 hours to complete the request. Work may be picked up in the office.
