1. How do I know if my child attended school all day?


The dash (-) indicates that the student was present and in class.


2. What does the A mean?


The A means that your child was either absent for the full day or for that period. The A also indicates that the school did NOT receive notification of why your child was absent. 


3. What do I do if it says 'Unverified?'


Please call MacArthur's Attendance Office (714) 568-7717 and provide Mrs. Garcia the reason for your child's absence.

The K is used for students who are late less than 30 minutes and are not subject to the Truancy Law. The Y is used for students who are late over 31 minutes and is subject to the Truancy Law and parents will receive a Truancy Notification Letter from the school.
