2023-2024 Attendance Information 


Reporting Your Child’s Absence

California State Law requires that absence verification be made by a parent/guardian within 72 hours by sending a note to school or calling the attendance office at (408) 423-3261.  School staff is available between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  You may leave a message if the call is placed before or after school hours.  Please provide the following information:

  • Student’s name – first and last

  • Spelling of student’s last name

  • Date(s) of absence(s)

  • Reason for absence (illness, dentist appointment, etc.)

  • Caller’s name and relation to student (parent, guardian, etc.)

  • Phone number where caller can be reached that day 

Absences may be excused only by the parent/guardian listed on the student’s registration form.  Please keep the school informed of any changes in parent/guardian conditions. 

The following reasons are the only excusable absences outlined in California Education Code:

  • Doctor, dental or optical appointments (note required)

  • Court appointments (documentation required)

  • Minor illness

  • Funerals (parent, sibling, or grandparent) – note required one day in advance

Please note that missing the bus, oversleeping, visiting with a relative, family vacations, funerals for friends or distant relatives, car issues or a flat tire, etc. are not excusable absences. 

Students should not come to school when ill, and/or if they have a fever or any COVID-19 symptoms.  If a student becomes ill or injured at school, he/she must ask for a pass from the teacher and report to the office before leaving campus.  Office staff will obtain parent/guardian permission for the student to leave school.  No student will be allowed to leave campus due to illness without parent/guardian permission.
