How to Report Your Student's Absence



phoneAttendance Office phone: 760.290.2830

     (direct line and 24-hour voicemail)

Notify us each day that your student is absent.  Each absence from school must be reported to the Attendance Office by a parent/guardian within 72 hours of occurrence, as required by state law. 

Direct all messages regarding absences and/or tardies to the Attendance Office rather than to your student's teacher(s). While you may certainly take the extra step to notify the teacher(s), it is in Attendance that all record-keeping takes place.
