Attendance Guidelines

ABSENCE AND ABSENCE EXCUSES

  Regular and prompt attendance is the responsibility of both parent and student. Our goal is to provide your child with the best educational opportunities available. Regular attendance is essential to attain this goal. For this reason we strongly encourage parents to schedule medical/dental appointments and vacations when school is not in session. Each day of classroom instruction is important. Students need to inquire about missed assignments upon their return to school.

 REPORTING AN ABSENCE

  Student absences need to be reported to the school on a daily basis by a parent or guardian.You have 5 days to report an absence, otherwise it will be marked "unexcused". The number to report absences is: (858) 273-1313 ext. 110 (This telephone number is available 24 hours to report absences.)

TARDIES

 HALL PASSES

  Any student who wishes to enter or leave the room during the class period, or is performing a duty that takes him through the halls, must have a pass issued by a faculty or staff member.

 CONTRACTS OF INDEPENDENT STUDY

  The school qualifies for state funds when a student enters into a contract and completes the contract within the guidelines and timelines given. A contract does not guarantee passing grades. Grades will be determined by the supervising teacher for quantity and quality of work submitted by the due date. Parents must give the school adequate advance notice to prepare a contract—a minimum of 5 full school days. Contracts are only given to students that will be absent for 5 or more days.
