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)
Parents, caregivers, and guardians should contact the school attendance liaison if a student will be absent from class for any reason. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 714-619-0177 and provide the information listed above.
Students should also directly contact any teacher who has the student on roster for the period of time missed.
Please see the following link for Excused absences according to California Education Code: http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/codes_displaySection.xhtml?lawCode=EDC§ionNum=48205
Vacations are not considered excused absences. If your student will miss more than 3 days of school please email Lee Fleming at email@example.com 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.
