Attendance & Absence
In California, all children are required by law to attend school between the ages of 6 and 18, and must have good attendance records as well. The state defines legally truant as a student who misses school with a combination of the following types of absences without a valid excuse:
- three unexcused absences and/or
- three tardies and/or
- three absences of more than 30 minutes
You'll need to contact school office within two days of your child's return to school or the absences will be recorded as unexcused.
Call Ms. Mai Au at (408) 635-2674 x1908
or email at email@example.com
For planned absences, your child must complete and return a "Leave of Absence Request" form to school office at least
5 working days prior to the planned absence.
