• School Matters

    Showing up for school has a huge impact on a student’s academic success starting in kindergarten and continuing through high school.   Even as children grow older and more independent, families play a key role in making sure students get to school safely every day and understand why attendance is so important for success in school and on the job.

    There are three (3) ways a parent/guardian can notify the school about a student's absence:

    Email

    AnitaDoss@antiochschools.net

    Phone Call

    Attendance absence line 925-779-7611

     Written Note

    Notes can be dropped off or faxed to 925-779-7461


     Items to include in your notification:  

    - your child's name

    - the reason for the absence

    - parent/guardian signature 

    IMPORTANT NOTE:  The parent/guardian has 3 days to clear the absence.  If the absence is not cleared with appropriate documentation, it remains on the students records as an unexcused absence.
