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.
-Attendance Works (www.attendanceworks.org)
There are three (3) ways a parent/guardian can notify the school about a student's absence:
Attendance absence line 925-779-7611
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.
