Regular attendance is essential for a student's maximum achievement. 

Your child's attendance is very important to us. Teachers truly appreciate students who are on time and ready to learn. The school day begins smoothly and efficiently for both teachers and the rest of the class when all students are ready to receive instruction on time.


Parents need to make every effort possible to have students at their classroom door when the first bell rings at 7:55 a.m.; classes officially begin at 8:00 a.m. each day. Students who enter campus after the tardy bell are required to check in at the school office to sign the tardy log and get a tardy slip for entry to their classroom. By law, our attendance records have to be accurate as they are the basis of our funding. A student who is marked absent but is actually in attendance due to tardiness must have their attendance record changed for us to be in compliance with these laws. In addition, we need this information for safety reasons. The office needs to know who is actually on campus at any given time.


If your child is absent, please call the office or leave a message at (805) 640-4373 on the morning of the absence. By law, all absences must be accounted for and recorded. Parents can now also report an absence by clicking on the "Report an Absence" link under "Explore."
