Student absences need to be reported to the school BEFORE 10:00 a.m. on a daily basis by a parent or guardian. The preferred method to report an absence is by email: just click on Ms. Gabby's email below. If needed, you can also call to report absences is: (858) 459-4211 option 2 (This telephone number is available 24 hours to report absences). Please call within one week of your child's absence to avoid the absence being marked as Unexcused.

Please leave a brief and clear message providing the following information:

  • Student's LAST NAME (Please SPELL the last name)
  • Student's first name and grade level
  • Your relationship to the student
  • Date(s) of absence
  • Reason for absence or nature of illness
  • Is this absence for a single period or a full day?


Regular and prompt attendance is the responsibility of both parent/guardian and student. Our goal is to provide students with the best educational opportunities available. Regular attendance is essential to achieving this goal. For this reason, we strongly encourage the scheduling of medical/dental appointments and vacations when school is not in session. Each day of classroom instruction is important. Students are responsible for inquiring with their teachers about missed assignments upon their return to school after any absence.


Students leaving school early for any reason must be issued a "BLUE SLIP" from the Attendance Office. Parents must call 24 hours in advance or by 9:30am the day of to arrange this. Parents must sign students out with school staff in the Attendance Office with a photo ID. The student will be given their Blue Slip on campus prior to the requested pick-up time to present at the gate to exit. Only people authorized on the Enrollment Card will be allowed to pick up a student during school hours.


Any student who is out of class without permission or leaves campus without permission is considered TRUANT. Parents will be notified. Truancy will affect grades and citizenship in classes missed.


Students are expected to be in their seats with all necessary materials (books, paper, pencil, etc.) and be ready for work when the tardy bell rings. Students in Physical Education classes are to be inside their respective Locker Room and changing into their gym clothes when the tardy bell rings. School begins promptly at 8:35 a.m. All students not in their class by 8:35 a.m. must sign in at the Attendance Office. Students are assigned detention if they are tardy more than five (5) times in each semester. EXCESSIVE tardies will affect citizenship grade and are part of the End of the Year Activity Criteria.

Tardiness is tallied on a semester basis and can be monitored in Power School. A plan for correction of repeated tardiness will be individually devised and enforced. Teachers may allow a tardy to be made up before or after school. The Attendance Clerk determines whether tardiness is to be excused. A note or phone call from the parent will not necessarily excuse a student's tardy. Each teacher is expected to follow the school's tardy policy. The policy is as follows:

  • For the first three unexcused tardies, the teacher takes appropriate action, and may contact the parent by phone or a note to be signed and returned.
  • If the teacher has contacted a parent, upon the fourth and all subsequent tardies, the teacher may refer the pupil to the counselor. The counselor will contact the parent. The student may be assigned disciplinary consequences.

Tardies may affect a student's participation in the End of Year Activities and Promotion Ceremony. Please refer to the End of Year Activity and Promotion Criteria.


Any student with permission to leave the room during the class period, or who is performing a duty that takes him/her through the halls, must have their Hallway Passport signed by a faculty or staff member. Hall passes will not be given to students to return to lockers for textbooks or notebooks.
