SRHS Attendance

Every Day Counts!

Scripps Ranch High has one of the highest average daily attendance of all comprehensive high schools in the San Diego Unified School District. We are very proud of this accomplishment and really appreciate the support from parents to have students attend school every day.

Please read the attendance policy in the Student Handbook. Reporting your student's absence the morning of the occurrence keeps you from being interrupted later in the day and keeps your student from being called out of the class to help the Attendance Office staff account for the absence. Every period of absence must be accounted for. Your assistance in this matter is greatly appreciated.

Good attendance is a top priority during the entire school year because when students are attending school daily, more learning and better grades can be achieved.
