Students are expected to have regular and prompt attendance in class. Missing more than 40 minutes of an 80-minute class (or half the period for a shorter class) constitutes an absence. While being present at school every day is very important, we recognize that there are instances where an absence is necessary and even expected (i.e. illness, death in the family, COVID protocols, etc.). Such instances should supersede any efforts to be in school every day.
When a student is expected to be absent for either the whole day or part of the day, the parent must call the Attendance Office at extension 7440, as well as send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to notify the school of the absence.
The day after an absence the parent/guardian must provide a signed note either by submitting the form below, emailing the Attendance Office, by fax (626) 480 - 7442, or sent with the student to drop off at the Attendance Office upon the return to campus.
