• Bella Vista's Senior Cut Policy How do I clear an absence?

    Leave a message on the 24hr attendance recorder at 971-5002, or email with the following information:

    Student's full name
    Your relationship to the student
    Date(s) of the absence(s)
    Reason for the absence

    Absences not cleared within 5 school days become truancies.

    How to reach the attendance office:

    Becky Hedrick: 971-5040
    Cheryl Monaco: 971-5041 

    How do I get an early dismissal?

    Please write a note with the time and the reason and have the student turn it in to the attendance office before school starts. Please do not e-mail for early dismissals.

    Did you know?

    Consistent school attendance is one of the most reliable predictors of student success.
    We do pretty well...the average SJUSD student misses less than 1 day of school per month.
    However...on the average day, SJUSD students lose $78,500 due to absences.
    A 1% improvement in SJUSD's attendance rate would bring an extra $2.4 million to SJUSD students.

    Every day counts!
