Attendance, Policies & Procedures

According to Ed Code parents have 10 days to clear student absences

NOTE: While on the Distance Learning model, daily attendance is still required.  Students are expected to log/check in with their teacher as required through out the day.   Students who cannot log in are considered absent.  Please contact the school if your child will be absent.

Daily attendance at school is important for your child's schooling.  Each day standards are taught and knowledge builds.  Missing school can lead to students missing work and the practice necessary for their success in school.  Life skills are demonstrated, practiced and refined at school and through school activities/work.

However, your child will get sick from time to time, and in order to keep other students from getting sick, and to help your child get better faster, it may be necessary to keep your child at home. 

If you do need to do this: (1) email the school office to let them know (Sierra Marion) your child is absent; (2) have your child complete as much of their work that they already have as possible per their health; (3) ask the teacher (find email here) if there is any work your child can do to stay up with their studies; (4) if there's no other work, have your child read; and (5) help your child get well again soon.  

There are 4 reasons an absence can be cleared (excused):

  • Ill
  • Medical
  • Funeral (immediate family only. 1 day in California 3 days allowed out of state)
  • Court

Please send an email to Ms. Sierra Marion to clear your absence.

Distance Learning Protocols and Procedures

Much like the traditional classroom, there are expectations and procedures for students and parents with regards to distance learning.  Individual teacher and school policies have already been communicated to each student.  Below is the district's Distance Learning Protocols and Procedures document.
