Attendance Policy

Satisfactory school progress is dependent upon regular attendance. The only excused absences are those resulting from illness, medical/dental appointments, court appearances, or a death within the immediate family. All other absences are considered unexcused.


Politica de asistencia

El progreso escolar satisfactorio depende de la asistencia regular. Las únicas ausencias justificadas son aquellas que resultan de una enfermedad, citas médicas / dentales, comparecencias en la corte o una muerte dentro de la familia inmediata. Todas las demás ausencias se consideran injustificadas.


The Board of Education amended administrative regulation 5113(a). The policy now reads, "Absences must be cleared within 5 school days after the student returns to school."

If absences are not cleared within 5 days, they will be considered unexcused.

Please be sure to call the Attendance Line at 760-966-4702.


Note From The Attendance Clerk...

If your student misses school, you must call the attendance office each day at (760) 966-4702.  The attendance line is available 24 hours a day.  Please note that all absences must be cleared within five (5) days.

If your child is out due to a family emergency, funeral, religious holiday, religious retreat (4 hours only), or court appearance, you must request the absence in writing, according to district policy.  Please download the form or stop by the attendance office to pick up a copy of the Personal Absence Form.  A personal absence will excuse your student for up to a maximum of three days, but must be approved by the school’s administrators.
