Attendance

To receive maximum benefit from classroom and instructional experiences, it is important that students attend school each day and on time (by 8:40 a.m.).  Students who arrive after 8:40 a.m. will be deemed tardy and will need to check in to the office before going to class.  "Perfect Attendance" is defined as being in school in person every day and arriving on time every day.

 

Regular and prompt attendance is a life skill for successful future employment.

Absences

If your child is ill or will be out for any reason, please leave a message on our 24 hour Attendance Line at 714-962-2451 ext. 2.  If you are unable to notify the school by phone, please send a note to school with your child on the day he/she returns stating the following:

  • Child's teacher and/or room #
  • Child's first and last name
  • Date of absence
  • Reason for absence (if ill, please indicate type of illness)
  • Your first and last name and relationship to the child

Independent Study Contracts

If you know that your child will miss school for 5 days or more, be sure to request an Independent Study Contract at least 5 days in advance.

School Attendance Review Board (SARB)

Students are required to attend school.  Excessive absences and/or tardies will be addressed through the principal and the district and county SARB process.  Excessive absences whether excused or not, result in the need for administration meetings to establish the best means of education for children.  Home Hospital and other options are available for those who qualify with medical conditions, prohibiting full days of on campus schooling.
