    Absence Reporting

    All absences must be reported to the school within 72 hours.

    You can report this absence in any of the following ways:

    • Send an email to
    • Call (925) 682-8000, extension 7060
    • Send a note to your teacher and/or the office

    Attendance is critical to student success. One day out is equivalent to approximately 2 days of lost instruction. Keep your children at home if they are truly ill, otherwise, please make your best effort to get your children to school on time, every day! Start good habits early!


    By the 6th grade, if a student continues to be chronically absent, it is a leading indicator of whether he or she will drop out of high school.
