Parents should send a note to school with their child following any absence. This note should be delivered in the morning to the Attendance Office or Magnet Office.
Excused Absence (#1)
Absences are defined as either excused or unexcused. In either case, when a student is absent from school, they miss valuable instructional time and the district earns no revenue. California Education Code 48205 provides that a student shall be excused from school when the absence is due to:
Any absence for reasons other that those listed above is not excused.
A student is marked tardy, when the student is not in his/her seat when the tardy bell rings, signaling the time class is to begin. Tardies are marked as excused or unexcused for the same reasons as absences listed above.
A student who is absent without valid excuse three full days in one school year or is tardy or absent for more than any 30-minute period during the school day without valid excuse on three occasions in one school year, or any combination thereof (EC 48260) is a truant.
A pupil who has been reported as a truant three or more times per school year, provided that no pupil shall be deemed a habitual truant unless an appropriate district officer or employee has made a conscientious effort to hold at least one conference with the pupil’s parent or guardian and the pupil himself, is an habitual truant (EC 48262).
