Attendance

Please Clear Absences Promptly!

Parents, please make sure you call your student's absence in within 48 hours. After this time period they will be marked truant and discipline may begin.

We can only go back 15 school days from the date you call when addressing previously uncleared (truant) absences.

Checking Students Out of School Early

Parents,

We need your understanding that last minute phone calls & last minute visits to the Attendance Office to release your student(s) early from school may not be accomplished in an immediate time frame. It is our policy at all times that we need at least an hour notice so that we can locate your student and have them ready to leave at the time you give us.

Please plan ahead! Send a note with your student to bring to us before school starts; call us the night before on the school line (not the 24 hour absent line) @ 294-6450. Punch in one of the following extensions: 2066, 2067 or 2077. You will get our Voice Mail (we do not work 24 hours :o)!!), please leave a message and we will process the information the next morning having your student ready to leave at your designated time.

Thank you for your help,

Cheryl Neff

Attendance Technician

 

Please Keep All Contact Numbers Updated!!

We verify all incoming calls by using Caller ID. If the number you are calling from does not match what we have in Infinite Campus we cannot address your attendance concerns. This includes releasing your student and/or clearing your students absences.

Please keep your information current in the Infinite Campus Parent Portal.

Reporting an Absence

Parents and Guardians are responsible for notifying the Attendance Office to report absence reason for their students within 48 hours.

 

Please call our 24 Hour Attendance Line at (951)294-6451

 

Please be prepared with the following information:

  • Parent's/Guardian's name
  • Student's first and last name - spell the last name for us, please
  • Student's grade
  • Reason for the absence
  • Date of the absence
  • A phone number where you can be reached if we have any questions

All absences should be called in by 2:00 pm each day of the student's absence. Calls received prior to 2:00 will be processed the same day, calls received after 2:00 pm will be posted the following work day.

 

Notes from Parents/Guardians addressing attendance issues are accepted. Always include a phone number on all notes so you can be reached should we have a question. Each note is evaluated for authenticity. If there are any questions regarding a note then a phone call will be made to a parent. In the event a parent cannot be reached the note is considered invalid until the call is returned and the note is verified.

 

All typed notes will be verified!

 

The Attendance Office does randomly verify notes for authenticity.

 

If the Attendance Office has not received notification from a parent/guardian within 3 days after an absence that absence will then be marked as a Truant absence.

 

Parents/Guardians have 15 days from the date of the initial absence to change the Truant mark to the correct reason for the absence (ie: illness, doctor, dental, personal business, college visits, etc.). To change the mark from Truant to the actual reason of absence the parent or guardian needs to do one of the following:

  • Call the 24 Hour Line to report the absence - (951) 294-6451
  • Send in a note with the student to give the Office briefly explaining the reason for the absence
  • Come into the Attendance Office to give the reason for the absence

If, after 15 days, the Truant mark remains the student's name is given to the Truancy Intervention Specialist. The student may then be called into the Office to determine the nature of the Truancy.

 

We cannot accept an e-mail as a means to address absent and/or tardy issues
