DAILY SCHOOL ATTENDANCE IS MANDATORY BY CALIFORNIA STATE LAW
It is a critical component of your child’s academic and social success that they attend school on time, every day. The school building opens at 7:30. The first bell rings at 7:55 so that students can line up ready to enter the classroom. When a child arrives on time, he or she is able to adequately prepare for the day. When students are tardy, they disrupt the learning in progress and have difficulty adjusting to the day already in progress. Please make every effort to ensure your child’s daily, on time attendance at Hillside School.
To clear an absence, students should bring a note from their parent/guardian that includes the following information: name of student, date of absence, reason for absence and signature of parent/guardian. The parent/guardian must make every effort to clear the absence on or before the day the student returns to school. A parent/guardian may also clear an absence by calling our absence line (317-5300) and press “3” at the recording. If a student is absent, please phone the office on that same day.
More than 3 unexcused absences may result in the parent/guardian being scheduled for a H.A.R.T. (Hillside Attendance Review Team) meeting with school and district administration. If the H.A.R.T. meeting does not result in improved attendance, parents will be referred to the Child Welfare & Attendance Office for a S.A.R.B. (School Attendance Review Board) for a hearing.
An Independent Study Contract may be available when a student will miss 10 days of school or more due to an extended documented illness. The contract will list assignment(s) the student must complete due to the absence. Parents/guardians are responsible for verifying that assignments are completed on time and returned to the teacher on the agreed upon date of return to school. With an independent study contract, absences are recorded as excused, the school verifies positive attendance, and your child’s attendance record does not reflect unexcused absences. These contracts are available in the school office. The school office must be notified at least 10 school days in advance of a planned absence due to illness, surgery or other medical procedure.
Students are expected to be at school on time each day as tardiness disrupts their learning and the learning of others. Parents/guardians will be notified when their child exhibits chronic tardiness (truancy) and appropriate consequences will be enforced and/or parents will be required to attend a meeting of H.A.R.T.
Remember: First Bell Rings at 7:55 AM and Instruction Begins at 8:00 AM.
