Early Student Pick-Up
Anyone picking up students must:
- be on the emergency card
- have photo identification
- enter the office and personally sign-out each student
When picking up students please plan your time to comply with these requirements.
First Notification Letter
To be classified as a truant, a student has had three (3) unexcused absences or three (3) tardies of 30 minutes or more. Education Code Section 48260.5 requires that the parent/guardian will be notified by a letter informing them of what can occur if their child is not in school.
Second Notification Letter – Truancy Meeting
If improvements in attendance have not been made, then a 2nd letter will be generated. The 2nd letter will have a time and date that you will need to meet with the principal to discuss why your student has been absent without valid reasons.
If all of the above has failed and your child is still not attending school, then your child will be referred for a School Attendance Review Board (SARB) hearing at the Hayward Police Department.
- medical/dental appointment
- death or funeral of immediate family member
note: Medical absence of more than 10 days will require a doctor's note
Tardy students must report to the office for a tardy slip before reporting to class. We cannot excuse tardies for oversleeping, car troubles, heavy traffic, etc.
