Attendance Policies

When a student is absent parents/guardians should call the Attendance Office at 723-3875 extension 9 leaving student's first and last name along with the date and reason for absence.

  1. Excusable absences must be cleared by telephone call or a note from the parent/guardian within 72 hrs (3 days) of the student’s return.
  2. Medical Note.  No more than 3 consecutive days of absence can be cleared for medical reasons.  A Doctor's note must be provided for more than 3 consecutive days.
  3. For Medical Appointments.  If the parent/guardian is aware of the appointment in advance, PLEASE inform teacher a day prior to the appointment. Parents MUST come to the office first to sign out students at ALL TIMES.
  4. Early/Late Student Pick Up. If you’re picking up your child early from school, the only valid excuses are if your child has a medical or dental appointment. Parents/Guardians must bring a Doctor’s note the following school day.
    1. Students MUST be picked up on time everyday. If your child is not picked up on time the school will call Hayward Police Department.
    2.  Tardy Procedures* Students are expected to arrive to school on time. Students who are late will served after school detention on schedule dates for one hour.
