Attendance: Absences, tardies, and early sign-out

California law requires that all children between the ages of 6 and 18 attend school. It is very important for students to arrive at school on time. However, if your child will be 30+ mins. late or absent, please call the office by 9 a.m. at 510-748-4013. You may call at any time of the day or night to leave a message. A phone call is the best way to let us know your child is home. Any student who arrives after the start of the school day must report to the office to receive a pass to class.


Signing Out Students During School Hours

If it is necessary to remove your child from school during the day, please follow these steps:

1.  Send a note with the child explaining to the teacher the time of dismissal and who will pick him/her up.

2.  Sign the student out in the office. Students will not be permitted to leave campus during the school day unless signed out and accompanied by an adult who is authorized to remove them from school (name listed on emergency card).


Contracted Study or Extended Absences

For information about extended absences, as well as more detailed attendance policies, please read the AUSD Attendance Procedures.
