School attendance is one of the most important factors other than parent support in predicting academic success and setting the foundation for life long learning. Attendance is Cabrillo’s cornerstone in our mission to produce critical thinkers and collaborative learners. Students who are absent from school miss out on Common Core standard based instruction, have to make up work, and miss the social networking so important in a school culture. Teachers cannot teach to an empty seat.
If your child is ill we certainly expect them to stay home, go to the doctor, and get 100% better. We cannot infect the other students and want your child to be in a condition so he or she can learn best. It is important to call the school office to report your child's absence so we can give an accurate report to the district. We are pleased to be a partner in your child's health and education.
