Attendance Policies

If your child is going to miss school for ANY reason, please call the school office at
739-5655 24 hours a day, you can leave a message or send a note giving the name of your student, the student's teacher, the reason for the absence and the day/date the student(s) will be absent. This procedure will prevent unnecessary calls to the home as all absences must be verified by our office staff for State and District Compliance.

Independent Study Agreement

Occasionally, there is an occurrence in the family where the student will be missing school for several days.  There is an Independent Study Agreement that can be given for students missing 5 to 10 days and work is assigned and due back on the day your student returns to school.  In this way, the student can keep up with class work and receive credit for missing school.  Please contact your child's teacher first and then the Attendance Clerk in the front office at least one week ahead of time to arrange your child's Independent Study contract.  

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our school office at (951)739-5655.

Student Attendance Guidelines

One of our goals is to ensure that every student attends school regularly. 

Showing up for school has a huge impact on a student’s academic success starting in kindergarten and continuing through high school. 

We realize some absences are unavoidable due to health conditions or other circumstances.  However, we also know that when students miss too much school – regardless of the reason – it can cause them to fall behind academically. 

Your child is less likely to succeed in school if he or she is chronically absent.  Absences can add up quickly.  A child is chronically absent if he or she misses just two days every month. 

In an effort to collaborate with you and keep you informed of your child’s attendance, school sites will be reaching out to you in the event that your child misses school based on the guidelines below:




Letter 1

7 attendance events

Letter 2

10 attendance events

Letter 3/ SART Meeting

15 attendance events


Please remember that every absence matters and just a couple of days each month adds up.  Families are key to improving attendance.

Let us work together to encourage your child to strive for Fewer Than 4 absences To Learn More this school year.
