After Being Out
All students must secure an Admit Slip from the Attendance Office prior to returning to class.
Students should make arrangements to secure the Admit Slip at least ten minutes prior to the start of class at 8 a.m.
Prompt and regular attendance is encouraged and necessary for successful performance and achievement. A student should be absent or tardy only when such absence or tardy is unavoidable.
State law lists illness, bereavement, and doctor’s appointments as the only excused absences. [Full District Board Policy]
All others including vacations, are unexcused, and teachers retain the option of giving or not giving makeup work for unexcused absences. California State Law labels unexcused absences and associates them with truancy; it is likely your family will receive a truancy letter due to unexcused absences.
Should your child become ill for more than two days, please contact your child’s Counselor or Assistant Principal to pursue class assignments and further educational arrangements.
