It is imperative that students attend class on time, daily in order to achieve academic success. Please call or e-mail if your student is going to be absent, for any reason. Studies show:
• Students who miss 2 days/month are 5X more likely to be below grade level in reading, writing and math
• Students with good attendance are far more likely to be successful in school
• Regular attendance in school helps students develop socially-emotionally
• Regular attendance leads to a higher rate of high school graduation
• Chronic absenteeism is defined as students who miss 10% or more of school.
Examples of Excused vs. Unexcused Absences (not an exhaustive list)

California compulsory education law requires minors between the ages of six and eighteen to attend school. Students who are habitually truant/absent will be considered for recommendation to the School Accountability Review Board (SARB) per Education Code 48263 and if not corrected, the matter may be referred to the courts.
