ATTENDANCE

We understand that sometimes students have extenuating circumstances that may require them to be absent at some point during the school year. If your student is absent, we do ask that you clear your student’s absence within 72 hours. You can clear your student’s absence via email providing the information below:

Your child’s full name

Date of and reason for absence

Your printed name, signature and relation to the student

Your daytime telephone number or email (if preferred)

 

If a student will be absent from class for any reason, including illness, the student is expected to report to any teacher who has the student on roster for the period of time missed as well as their advisory teacher.

 

Parents, caregivers, and guardians report any major illness or injury directly to the Student Development Coordinator sgooch@samueliacademy.org (including covid-19-related medical issues).  All other minor absences should be reported directly to the classroom teacher who has the student on roster for the period of time missed and the student’s advisory teacher.

Please note:
Please see the following link for Excused absences according to California Education Code: http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/codes_displaySection.xhtml lawCode=EDC&sectionNum=48205.

Vacations are not considered excused absences. If your student will miss more than 3 days of school please email Lee Fleming at lfleming@samueliacademy.org about an Independent Study Contract. This must be done at least two weeks prior to your planned absences. You must provide a medical note for all medical appointments. Illnesses up to three days may be verified by the parent. Illnesses of longer duration or that are chronic and cause the student to miss school frequently will require a doctor’s note.

All absences not cleared within 72 hours (3 days) will be marked as unexcused absences. Once attendance is locked at the end of the week- absolutely no changes will be made to attendance whether it is excused or not.
