Absences need to be cleared within 72 hours. Students who are excused more than 10 times in a year will need documentation from a doctor. If you leave early or come late due to a doctor or dentist appointment, please bring a note from the doctor. The date and time needs to be marked on the note. Students who accumulate 3 unexcused absences and or tardies will receive a first truancy letter. Any additional unexcused tardies or absences can trigger a second letter. Once a student accumulates 6 unexcused absences or tardies, they will be declared a legal truant and will be referred to the district SARB (School Attendance Review Board). The attendance number is (925)779-7609.
