Attendance

 
24 Hour Absence Line:
(408) 874-3710
 
Whenever your child is going to be absent for any reason, the front office needs to be notified first.  Even if you have already notified the classroom teacher of the absence, you still need to call the office.  Please call no later than 9 am on the day of the absence.
 
If the school office is not contacted by a parent or guardian, your student will receive and UNEXCUSED mark.  If a student receives (4) four unexcused absences and does not return on the 5th day they will be dis-enrolled.
 

 

 
TARDIES
Tardies are disruptive to both your child and his/her class.  Punctuality is a habit that needs to be established while children are young. We would appreciate your cooperation in helping your child learn this important habit.  Children must be in their classrooms by 8:15 am.
 
 
 
 
 
SHORT-TERM LEAVE
A Short-Term Leave is offered one time throughout the school year. Your child may be out up to 7 consecutive school days.  Some restrictions apply as to when the leave is available.  A short term leave is never offered the first ten days of school or the last ten days of school.  School work that is missed while away from school will be given to the student upon their return.  Whenever your child is going to be absent for any reason, the front office needs to be notified first.  The Short-Term Leave contract can be found below.
