• 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.  
     
    We realize, however, that students do get sick and will miss school. 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 or family emergency

    Calling in an Absence:

    If your child must be absent or tardy for any reason, please email the Mrs. Hernandez, at (951) 696-1403 or e-mail her at lhernandez@murrieta.k12.ca.us..  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
    When your child returns to school, please send a written note including your child's name, his/her teacher's name, date of absence, reason for absence and your signature. 
     
    If you are going to be out of town, please contact the teacher several days in advance. 

    Tardies

    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.
