Parents should call the school (858-496-8080 x2212) every day of a child’s absence. If a family emergency arises, please contact the school as soon as possible prior to your student missing school, so we can help plan for this absence. We have a form that you will need to fill out prior to leaving.
As a school, we use the automated system to notify you that your child was absent. This also serves as a reminder to parents to contact the school to discuss the nature of the student’s absence.
Any absence that is not called in within a two-week period of the date the student missed school will become an unexcused absence. Students can attend Saturday School to clear unexcused absences. Saturday School is intended to be a productive and positive way that students can make up the time lost due to any absence. They will clear 4 period tardies and one absence by attending.
Students who have 2 or more unexcused or unverified absences in a 6 week grading period will be placed on the Loss of Privilege list, which will result in students missing out on fun activities that occur here at De Portola.
