• Attendance Information

    Please make sure to clear any absences with the front office. Call (916) 971-5246

    If you do not have or cant get to a phone, your child must have a note from you clearing his/her absence on the day he/she returns. 

    If your child is absent for a medical appointment, a doctor's excuse note must be brought in to the office when the child returns. 

    The Child Welfare & Attendance will be monitoring your child's attendance and issuing letters if absences meet the criteria listed below: 

     Absence letter for excused absences (sick days or medical appointments) 

    5 absences - Letter # 1 making parents aware that a doctor's slip is needed to clear the absence. 

    10 absences - Letter #2 sent if no doctor's slips are received by the office. (After 10 sick days will be marked as unexcused days) 

    Truancy Letters for excessive un-excused absences/truancies 

    3 absences - letter #1

    5 absences - Letter #2

    6 absences - Letter #3

    For any questions regarding the information above, please call (916) 979-8604


    Weekly Incentives at Kingswood 

    Every week we have incentives for the students who are here on time every day during that week. Students get entered into a raffle and every Friday prizes are given out to the raffle winners. It's very important that students are here every day so they don't miss out on anything. So please make sure they are here and on time. 

    Facts About School Attendance

    • Multiple absences in the first month of school can predict poor attendance throughout the school year. Half the students who miss 2-4 days in September go on to miss nearly a month of school.
    • Over 8 million U.S. students miss nearly a month of school each year.
    • Poor attendance can influence whether children read proficiently by the end of third grade. 
    • Research shows that missing 10 percent of school, or about 18 days in most school districts, negatively affects a student’s academic performance. That’s just two days a month and that’s known as chronic absence.
    • When students improve their attendance rates, they improve their academic prospects and chances of graduating.
