• Attendance

    In order for your son or daughter to receive the very best education possible, he or she needs to be in school every day. So much goes on in one day that missing important instruction for only one day can make a difference in a student’s learning. We want all of our students to experience the most success possible.  
    While we realize that students do get sick and will miss school, absences should be kept to a minimum. The law requires that we document these absences as excused or unexcused. Only parents or guardians can excuse a student’s absence, provided the reason falls within the guidelines established by law. The only valid reasons for a student’s absence (excused) are:
    • Illness or injury to student
    • Quarantine of the home by a county or city health official
    • A medical, dental, optometric or chiropractic appointment
    • Other absences deemed justifiable by the school such as a religious holiday, military event, funeral, or family emergency

    Calling in an Absence:

    If your child must be absent or tardy for any reason, please email Lola Hamilton at (951) 696-1411.   For your convenience a voice mail system takes messages when the office is closed. 

    Please state:

    • Student’s full name
    • Student’s grade
    • Name & relationship of person calling in the report
    • Date(s) of absence
    • Reason for absence
    If you are unable to call in, please send a written note including the information above and your signature. 
    If you are going to be out of town, please contact the teacher several days in advance. Teachers request a 24 hour notice if homework is desired for your child during a long absence.


    We respect the importance of quality instructional time. Teachers will start their classes on time and students should be at school, in their seat and ready for instruction when the day begins. Interruptions due to tardiness take away from learning time, and are disruptive to the class. Tardy students are to report to the office as soon as they arrive at school. 

    Leaving School During School Hours 

    Any parent/guardian who plans to take their child out of school during school hours must come to the office, show proper ID and sign their child out of school. A Parent/Guardian requesting to take their child out should have their name on the emergency card. The clerk will call your child's room and have him/her sent to you in the office.
