Attendance

 

Absences

Please contact our attendance clerk at (831) 899-1100 Ext. 3196 to report any student absence or if you have any questions regarding attendance. 
 

When students are absent from school, they are missing valuable instructional experiences and lessons that often cannot be made up. When children are out due to an illness that can’t be helped it is an excused absence. Some absences can be avoided like doctor and dental appointments. Many doctors understand the importance of students not being disrupted from their class lessons and will make appointments after school.

 

If your child is out for an illness for 5+ consecutive days, a doctor's note is required to excuse the absences.

 

If your child will be out for 5 - 15 days, please arrange to have an Independent Study Contract completed through the office at least 2 weeks prior to the beginning of the absence.
