Reporting an Absence

Report absences through the attendance office by written note, telephone call, or using the Absence Reporting Form. Only a parent or guardian may report or clear an absence. The attendance office phone number is  669-369-4405. This number provides a twenty-four hour answering service. When leaving a message or writing a note, please include the following:

  1. Student's ID #

  2. Student's first and last name

  3. Spelling of student’s last name

  4. Date(s) of absence(s)

  5. Caller's name and relation to student

  6. Reason for absence(s)

  7. Call back number

Absences need to be reported to the attendance office as soon as possible. Any absence that is unreported within 72 hours, will be considered unexcused.*  Accruing unexcused absences may result in administrative action. Absences for medical reasons that exceed  3 days will require a doctor’s note.

*Please note that not all absences are excused simply because they have been reported. Please refer to the SCUSD Student and Family Handbook for more information regarding excused absences.
