Students are expected to attend school regularly. Each class period is factored as an independent absence for purposes of state audits. Students who are absent more than five (5) days during any given school year, are less likely to earn excellent academic grades in their classes. Saddleback High School reports all absences to the District, County, and State agencies for purposes of SART (School Attendance Review Team) and SARB (School Attendance Review Board). In the event of an absence, parents or guardians must notify our school about the date and reason for absence.
Students are expected to be in their seats by the time the bell rings.
