If your child is going to be absent or delayed, please call the school absence line (408-253-4696, then press 6) every day that the child is out.
If your child is going to be absent from school, notify the school office either before the day of the absence (before 8:00 am).
If your child is out for multiple days, please be sure to report his/her absence every day that the student is out.
It is helpful to inform the teacher, but the office needs to be officially notified. It is not the teacher’s responsibility to communicate your child’s absence to the school office.
Office notification does not automatically make an absence excused.
If your child has a fever, diarrhea or is vomiting, please keep your child at home.
Students returning to school should be symptom-free for 24 hours without medication.
If your child has a doctor’s appointment during the school day, they should not be missing school all day. They can be picked up from the school office ahead of their appointment and can be dropped back after the appointment. Please submit the doctor’s note verifying the appointment/absence within 5 days of the absence.
An absence for religious participation in religious exercises may be considered excused; please discuss options for such purposes with the school office. Per Education Code, an advanced written request must be submitted to the school office to receive a full day excused absence for participation in a religious exercise or holiday. Failure to provide the advance written request will result in your child receiving an unexcused absence.
