Absence Reporting

  • 24 HOUR ABSENCE LINE:  (408) 255-7500 ext. 6


    If your child will be absent or late to school you must report the absence or delay to the office, even if you have emailed your child's teacher.

    Please report all absences or delays before 9:00 am on the day of the absence/delay.

    To report an absence/delay you may leave a message on our absence line at 408-255-7500 extension 6. Messages may be left 24 hours a day.

    All students arriving to school late must check in at the office.  School starts promptly at 8:15 am (7:20 for zero period). Your student is late if they are not in the classroom when school starts.

    If you need to pick up your child early, come to the office first to check them out.  The office staff will call the classroom to have your student meet you in the office. Please allow 5-10 minutes for your student to arrive in the office.


Planned Absence Request Form

  • The District does not support the practice of taking trips/vacations on school days. Absences due to family trips are unexcused unless the absence is pre-arranged and a short-term independent study contract has been approved by the school principal. 

    Report of Absence form should be filled out by the parent/guardian for any planned student absences. The school will work with parents to determine if the planned student absence is considered an excused or unexcused absence. Report of Absence forms are available here: English  |   Chinese  |  Hebrew  |  Japanese  |  Spanish.

    More information can be found on the District Attendance Policy webpage.
