Student Attendance



When your child is absent from school, please leave a detailed message on the absence line by calling (650) 851-1777, by 8:00 am (student name, teacher, reason of absence, and identity of caller). Excused absences are only allowed for the following reasons:

  1. Personal illness;

  2. Quarantine under the direction of a county or city health officer;

  3. Medical appointments;

  4. Dental, optometrical, or chiropractic appointment;

  5. Illness or death in the student’s immediate family;

  6. Participation in religious instruction or exercises in accordance with District policy


Students who demonstrate a pattern of excessive absences or tardiness may be referred to the county School Attendance Review Board (SARB) for possible review. Students with excessive absences may also be required, at the discretion of school personnel, to provide medical verification of absences. Students taking extended vacations during the school year must notify the office and may need to meet with the principal about our absence policy.
