• Attendance Letters

    Each month, attendance letters are mailed home.  

    • Late letters are sent when your child has arrived to class late but before 9:00.  The letters are sent when your child has been late 5, 8, and 12 times.
    • Truancy letters are sent after 3 and 5 unexcused absences, which include being 30 minutes late or more.  At 10 absences, you may be required to attend either a District’s Student Attendance Review Board (SARB) meeting or a mediation meeting with the Santa Clara County District Attorney and District staff. 
    • Illness letters are sent when your child has missed 7 days due to illness that were not verified by a doctor or school staff.  You will be required to get a doctor's note for all future absences when your child is sick.  To avoid this, ask your doctor for a note each time you go, verifying the appointment or illness.  Those days will not be counted towards the 7 days.

    Please note:  You will be contacted by the office if it becomes necessary to meet with you to discuss your child's attendance.
