    District Attendance Policies - Excused vs. Unexcused Absences
    • Students are allowed 10 sick days per school year
    • Under state law, an absence is considered “excused” only for these reasons: student illness, funeral for an immediate family member, a medical appointment for the student, observation of a religious holiday or ceremony, or a court appearance (documentation must be provided with student’s name on it)
    • According to California State law, family emergencies are NOT considered an excusable absence, (e.g., car broke down, family member in hospital, etc.)
    Early Dismissals
    • Photo ID is required for all Early Dismissals. Person picking the student up MUST be listed as a contact on the student’s emergency card
    • You may send your child to school with a note with the time of pick up for that day and we will have the student waiting in the attendance office at the time of pick up.
    Independent Study
    • A student may be put on an Independent Study Contract if they will be out of school for 5-10 school days.
    • The school must be notified and the contract must be signed at LEAST 10 days prior to the student’s absence. Contact the attendance clerk for more information.
