ATTENDANCE: Please communicate with us whenever your child is absent, you may call the front office at (805) 474-3740, message us via parent square or input the absence in the form below. It is VERY important that you contact us when your student is absent. If you do not contact us your student will be marked with an unexcused absence. Attendance letters are automatically generated after 3, 5, and 7 unexcused absences. What is an unexcused absence? Glad you asked! An unexcused absence is when your student is absent for a day or gone for more than 30 mins of the school day without one of the following.
*A doctor's note.
*A parent calling in their absence for one of the following reasons:
-Student Illness (see below)
-Attending a funeral
*Documentation that the student was at court.
Every student has 10 illness days that they can use to excuse an absence without a doctor's note. However once those days are all used every illness absence after that will require a doctor's note to be excused. So please always get notes when you can.
Attendance codes you will see in homelink:
A= Absence (all day)
N = Notified -if you see the code stating "Notified" - that means an attempt was made to find out why the student was absent but we never heard from the parent as to the reason for the absence.
T = Tardy - Less than 30 mins late.
S/F= These codes stating "30+ Minutes" means that the student arrived more than 30 minutes late to school or left more than 30 minutes early from school for an unexcused reason respectively. Missing 30 minutes is counted as a school absence.
It is important that your child come to school each day. If an absence is necessary, please let us know the reason either by phone or by filling out the attendance form included here.
