• 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 verify a student’s absence. 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
      Funeral for immediate family member 
    • Other absences deemed justifiable by the school such as a religious holiday

    Calling in an Absence:

    If your child must be absent for any reason, please email Rebecca Triplett at rtriplett@murrieta.k12.ca.us or you may call her at (951) 445-4110 and press 1 for the attendance line. For your convenience, a voice mail system takes messages when the office is closed. 

    Please state:

    • Student’s full name (please spell the last name)
    • Name & relationship of person calling in the report
      Teacher's name 
    • Date(s) of absence
    • Reason for absence
    If you are going to be out of town, please contact the teacher several days in advance. 


    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.
