 Attention!   Click Here for the 2016-2017 Bell Schedule.

Attendance is the most fundamental building block for success in high school. Because parental support is essential in the maintenance of accurate attendance records, we request that you familiarize yourself with the following procedures and review them with your students.
Bullet Clearing Absences
Bullet Attendance and Non-Classroom Participation Rules
Bullet Consequences
 
CLEARING ABSENCES and TARDIES
All legitimate student absences must be cleared by a parent/guardian. These clearances must be accomplished by the following methods:
  • A. A note, signed by a parent/guardian, and turned into the Attendance Office. The note must include the exact dates and periods of absence and indicate the reason for the absence.
 
  • B. A telephone call from a parent/guardian to the Attendance Office indicating the exact dates and periods of absence and the reason for the absence.
 
  • (NOTE: 18 year old students may clear their own absences by one of the methods above. The school, however, reserves the right to verify the legitimacy of such absences if it appears that appropriate responsibility is not being maintained. This privilege may be revoked by the parent/guardian or a school administrator if the student takes advantage of this privilege. Please see the Education Code 46012 explained in this document for further information regarding 18 year olds.)
 
ALL ABSENCES MUST BE CLEARED WITHIN 2 SCHOOL DAYS OF A STUDENT'S RETURN TO SCHOOL - WEEKENDS & HOLIDAYS EXCLUDED

Notes are to be turned in to the Attendance Office before school, during lunch, or after school. Telephone calls may be made to the Attendance Office using the following numbers:
Bullet 7:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Main Switchboard 389-2500
Bullet 7:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Attendance Office only 389-2701
Bullet 24 hour line Recorder responds 3:30 p.m.-7:00 a.m. in Attendance Office. 389-2700
MOST IMPORTANT: Absences not cleared within the 48-hour time period are considered to be unexcused (truant) and will result in disciplinary action against a student consistent with guidelines contained in this packet. NOTE: All absences must be cleared through the Attendance Staff. Calls to other offices relative to attendance are not recorded and will not suffice to clear an absence.

To assist parents in keeping informed of students absences, an automatic calling system makes daily calls to the home of students who are marked absent for any period during the day unless that absence has been previously cleared. If you have any questions regarding your student's attendance, please call the Attendance Office. We hope this information will be of value to you during the coming year.

If a student is late to first period, the tardiness will be excused IF a parent/guardian walks the student to the Attendance Office window or sends a note with the student. No phone calls will be accepted the first 30 minutes of school. After 5 excused tardies, the teacher or administrator may assign the student to report to detention instead of interrupting the class again. Tardies excused with a Doctor's note or by parent will show as an "N" on the attendance page. All others will be shown as a "T" for unexcused tardy.
ATTENDANCE AND NON-CLASSROOM PARTICIPATION RULES
A student will be marked absent by each teacher at any time he/she is not present in his/her scheduled class.
 
When a student returns following an absence, the Attendance Office must be notified within 48 hours (not including weekends or holidays) by means of a parent/guardian note or telephone call stating the reason for the absence. Students may turn in notes to the Attendance Office before school, during lunch, or after school.
 
At twenty (20) periods of non-classroom participation per semester, but not including athletics, school activities, hospitalization, or verified medical convalescence, an individual teacher may reduce a student's semester grade one full letter grade. Grade lowering begins on the 20th class absence and is reduced for every five (5) additional absences. For example, if a student has earned an "A" grade, his/her grade will be reduced to a "B" on the 20th absence, and lowered to a "C" on the 25 absence. (Except for Physical Education, see policy of department regarding 80% participation).
Failure to clear an absence with a legitimate reason within 48 hours will result in a truancy being marked on the student's attendance record. Using forged notes or making unauthorized telephone calls to clear absences will be cause for disciplinary action and possible suspension from school.
 
Education Code 46012
Verification of absences — students 18 years of age and over: For purposes of any procedure for verification of absences from school, a student 18 years of age or over, with respect to his own absences from school, shall have all the responsibilities and powers which, in the case of a minor, would be charged to the parent, guardian, or other person having charge or control of the minor.
The Attendance Office requires a note of approval from the parent/guardian to allow their 18 year old student to be responsible for their own verification of absences.
CONSEQUENCES
FULL DAY TRUANCY
  • 1. For each full day truancy episode (4 or more unexcused periods per day), the student will be assigned Saturday School.
 
  • 2. Repeat violations will result in additional consequences which may include:
a. After-School or Lunch-Detention
b. In-School Suspension 
c. Suspension
d. Referral to School Attendance Review Board (S.A.R.B.) 
e. Referral to Alternative Education





CLASS CUTS (1 to 3 unexcused periods per day)

  • 2. Students will not be admitted to class after the last bell without a valid hall pass.
 
  • 3. Students who are late to class must report immediately to Wildcat Detention and remain for the entire period. The absence will be excused, but students must arrange with the teacher for missing classroom assignments and tests. Teachers will notify students of their policies for missing classroom participation. Policies may vary from teacher to teacher.
 
  • 4. Students who accrue 10 class cuts may be assigned an after-school or lunch-detention.




The school may take disciplinary action against students for any infraction related to school attendance that occurs at any time including, but not limited to, the following:
  • 1. while on school grounds
  • 2. while going to or from school
 
  • 3. during lunch, on or off campus
 
  • 4. during or while going to or from a school activity




Actions taken for school related infractions may include: a warning, detention, Saturday School, in-school suspension, suspension, referral to the Alternative Education Committee, the School Attendance Review Team (S.A.R.T.), or the School Attendance Review Board (S.A.R.B.), expulsion recommendation and involvement of local law enforcement agencies, as appropriate.
