Students who attend school regularly have been shown to achieve at higher levels than students who do not have regular attendance. This relationship between attendance and achievement may appear early in a child's school career. Research shows that attendance is an important factor in student achievement. Please make every effort to get your student to school every day on time.
Fall 2021: With our return to in person learning, please take the time each morning to run throught the Covid 19 Daily Prescreening list before sending your child to school to help us minimize the spread of illness on our campus.
When your child is ill, or needs to miss a day of school, please notify the office as soon as possible. There are new procedures for reporting absences, so please be patient with our office staff as they share the timelines for student return to school. We can offer Covid tests by appointment to students who register in the San Juan Covid Testing system. Please contact the office and they will help you schedule a test if needed.
If your child is going to misss school, please contact our school in one of three ways;
- Phone the attendance line at: 916-971-7303
- Email the attendance email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Use the San Juan App to report an absence. See the information below to learn more about the uses of the San Juan app, including reporting absences.
We appreciate your help regarding attendance of our students.
