School Attendance Is A Priority!
Your child's success is very important to us and attending school plays a key role in school success. As parents and educators, we must work together for the success of our students. Children cannot learn if they are not in school. Students must attend school at all times!
As required by the California Education Code Section 48260.5:
1. Parents are obligated to compel the attendance of your child at school.
2. Parents or Guardians who fail to meet this obligation may be guilty of a misdemeanor or infraction and be subject to prosecution.
Our district procedures allow ten (10) days of excused absences without verification of illness from a medical professional. After the ten (10) days of unverified excused absences, you are required to provide verification from your child's physician to clear additional absences. (California Ed. Code Section 40611)
For additional information school attendance and general absences, please refer to the Student-Parent Information Handbook starting on page 19.
