It is accepted practice in our District, as well as State required, to call or send a written note with your child when he or she is absent, stating the exact reason for his or her absence. If the child was absent for more than 2 days for an illness, we require a doctors note. If your child was out due to an appointment for either dental or medical, please get a note from the doctors or dentist office and bring it to the school office as soon as possible. The doctor or dentist can also fax in a note to (760) 398-0628.
To report a students absence please call the Attendance Office at (760) 848-1680. Please leave your child's full name, teacher or room number, date of absence, person reporting the absence and relation, phone number, and last the reason for the absence.
