The following is helpful information regarding procedures to clear an absence, our tardy policy, and students leaving campus.
How to Clear an Absence
Please call the main office any time to report your child’s absence. When leaving a message, please state your child’s name, your name, date of absence and reason. Or, upon returning to school, send your student with written documentation regarding the absence that is signed by a parent or guardian. When there is no verification within three school days, the absence is considered unexcused. If a student accrues three or more unexcused absences, the student is considered to be truant (Ed Code 48260). Parents and guardians may call the following number to clear a student’s absence:
Students must be in the classroom when the bell rings. If a student is not in the classroom, they will receive an unexcused tardy.
If your student needs to leave campus during school hours, they will need to obtain an off campus pass prior to leaving campus. This can be arranged by either:
- Sending your student with a note stating your student’s first and last name, the reason, the time they need to leave campus, and your name. Your student will receive an off-campus pass which they will show the teacher when it is time to leave class. Your student can conveniently meet you in the parking lot.
- Call the attendance office at 530-826-3474, and an off campus pass will be prepared for your student. It is the student’s responsibility to pick up the off campus pass during their passing period or lunch. They will show the pass to the teacher when it is time to leave class and meet you in the parking lot.
Please Plan Ahead
Class time is valuable! Parents are always welcome to drop off an item for their student, as long as the student knows to pick it up. We do not deliver notes or items to classrooms, as it is a disruption to instructional time.
