Please telephone the school office at (408) 874-3410 if your child is absent from school. This number is available 24 hours a day, but we ask that you call no later than 8:30am on the day of the absence. Even if you have already notified the classroom teacher of the absence, you still need to call the office. If the school office is not contacted by a parent or guardian, your student will be considered truant.
Tardies are disruptive to both your child and his/her class. Punctuality is a habit that needs to be established while children are young. We would appreciate your cooperation in helping your child learn this important habit. Children must be in their classrooms by 8:25am.
ILLNESS/ABSENCES AND AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES
If your child stays home sick or goes home from school sick, he/she should not return to school for the remainder of the day. If they are not feeling well enough to be at school for the academic day then they should not participate in after school or extracurricular events. This includes the Extended Day program. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
A Short-Term Leave is offered one time throughout the school year. Your child may be out at one time from 1-7 days. Some restrictions apply as to when a leave is offered. A short term leave is never offered the first ten days of school or the last ten days of school. School work that is missed while away from school will be given to the student upon their return. Whenever your child is going to be absent for any reason, the front office needs to be notified first. The Short-Term Leave contract can be found below.
