Attendance Basics

Absence Line 949-369-6468
WHOLE DAY ABSENCES:  When a student is going to be absent the entire day, please call the 24 hour All-Day Absence Line on the date of the absence.  The absence line is 949-369-6468. Unverified absences become truancies after 72 hours.
ATTENDANCE is taken electronically each class period.  When it is necessary for your child to arrive at school after the beginning of 1stperiod please be sure your child checks in at the attendance windows.  If your child goes directly to class their absence for any periods missed will not be verified and an automated absence call will be made at the end of the day.
If you receive an automated call that your child missed any period(s) during the day, please call the attendance line to report the reason.
ABSENCE ERRORS: If a student is marked absent in error, the student needs to report it to their teacher and the teacher will notify the attendance office if a correction needs to be made.  The attendance office cannot change a period absence without teacher verification.  These updates must also be made within 72 hours.
ARRIVING LATE TO SCHOOL:  Any student who arrives late to school must check in to the attendance office either with a parent or a written note from their parent to get a pass to enter class.  If a student is late due to a medical appointment, it is recommended to bring an excuse from the Medical Provider; however, it is not required.
LEAVING SCHOOL EARLY:  Students who are leaving school early should bring a written note from their parent/guardian to the front office before school or during break.  Student will be given a Special Excuse Pass to give to their teacher.  This pass will allow them to you meet in the office at a designated time to be formally signed out.
LEAVING SCHOOL EARLY DUE TO ILLNESS:  If your child becomes ill during the school day they should ask their teacher for a pass to the health office. If your child texts or calls you, please instruct them to see the nurse.
Students can only be signed out of school by a PARENT, GUARDIAN, OR A PERSON AUTHORIZED AS LISTED on Parent Portal. Anyone checking a student out must PROVIDE A PHOTO ID and sign the student out at the front office before leaving campus.
