The Attendance Office is located in the Student Services building on Campus Drive, next to the main lobby. Parents and students are encouraged to monitor attendance in PowerSchool. Please feel free to contact the Attendance Office if assistance is needed with setting this up.


Absence notifications must be submitted as they occur. You may call (626) 821 - 1770 to report an absence or have your child check in at the Attendance Office with a parent note when they return from an absence.

When reporting an absence, either in writing or by telephone, please provide the following information:

Attendance is critical for student success. Students should be at school every day on time.  All absences which are not cleared within two (2) days after a student's return to school shall be recorded as unexcused. Only a parent or legal guardian may excuse an absence. 

If your child believes they were marked absent in error, please have them talk to or email the teacher directly. You do not need to notify the Attendance Office. The Attendance Office is unable to alter a teacher's recorded attendance without their authorization. The teacher will have to confirm if the student was present and met the attendance requirements for the class.


Students must check into school when arriving late and check out via the Attendance Office before leaving campus. This is our only way of knowing when the student actually arrives and/or leaves campus. Students who leave school without checking out or arrive late without checking in will be subject to disciplinary action. Parents are unable to clear absences after this has been recorded. Please review the student handbook regarding our attendance policy.


Students are expected to be on-time and prepared for every classStudents arriving after the start of school must check into the Attendance Office to receive an admit slip before going to class. Only tardies due to excused absence reasons will be excused.



Students who need to leave campus at any time during the school day, must obtain an off-campus permit from the Attendance Office. Failure to do so will result in disciplinary action.

If a student leaves campus WITHOUT obtaining an off-campus permit, the absence CANNOT be excused by the parent/guardian after the fact and will be recorded as UNEXCUSED. Students who do not follow these procedures are subject to disciplinary action.


Short-Term Independent Study is an educational option for students who will be absent for five (5) to fifteen (15) days. Requests must be received at least ten school days in advance of the absence. Please email with the Student Name/ID Number, reason for the absence and the dates the student will be absent. Requests are forwarded to the site administrator for review.

If an Independent Study Master Agreement Contract is generated for the student, it must be signed by the parent/caregiver and student and returned to the site representative electronically PRIOR to the absence.  If the signed copy is not received electronically prior to the absence, the Independent Study Master Agreement Contract becomes null and void.

Short-Term Independent Study may not be available during the first 10 days of school, finals week, during statewide testing or the last week of school. If a student does not complete the independent study contract, the absences will be considered “unexcused”, and will be subject to disciplinary action.


Students who become ill during the school day must check out through the Health Office. Students must visit the Health Office with a pass from their teacher prior to visiting the Health Office.


Students may be assigned Saturday School for unexcused absences. Each Saturday School absolves one (1) full day of absence. Students are required to bring enough academic work to last the entire four hours.  You should also bring a book to read should you finish your academic work early. Saturday School is held from 8:30am - 12:30pm, usually held in the MPR or Lecture Hall and will be held on the following days:
