Attendance

Attendance Policy

Regular daily attendance is expected. Students will report to school on time each day and be seated in class when the bell rings. Students with unverified absences may be assigned Saturday School to clear the absence. Excessive unverified and/or unexcused absences or tardies may also exclude a student from participation in semester and/or end-of-year activities.

  1. As Per State Ed. Code, absences may be cleared for illness, medical or dental appointment, or the death of an immediate family member.
  2. If you must miss school your parent needs to call the school at (858) 935-2650 to inform the attendance office. Unverified absences may become truancies if parents do not call and clear them with the attendance office.
  3. If a student is late, s/he must get a late pass from the attendance office before going to class.
  4. Students leaving early or arriving late are missing valuable class time. Please make appointments before school starts, on minimum days, after school, on school holidays, or during vacation time if possible.
  5. Students who must leave school during school hours must bring a signed, written note to the attendance office or have a parent/guardian pick them up and they MUST sign out in the office before leaving campus.

Truancies

The California Legislature (ED Section 48260a) defines a truant as any student:

  • absent from school without a valid excuse three (3) full days or,
  • who is tardy or absent more than any 30-minute period during the school day without a valid excuse on three occasions in one school year or,
  • any combination thereof.

Any student who is absent from school without a valid excuse for ten percent (10%) or more of the school days in one school year, from the date of enrollment to the current date, is deemed as a chronic truant. See "End-of-year Activity and Promotion Activities" section. Once days are deemed truant, Saturday School can clear these unexcused absences.
