    The Attendance office is regulated and audited by the State of California ~ All absences (Including early dismissal & late arrivals) MUST go through the Attendance Office.
    Please allow 30 minutes to process your request. 
    Early Dismissal on rally days and Friday's before a 3 day weekend / holiday break will take longer to process requests. 
    • Students are responsible for picking up their attendance pass (before school, during passing period or during lunch) to leave campus. 
    • Attendance Passes will NOT be delivered to their class, this disrupts the education process
    • Parents/ Guardians:  You will get a recording when calling the attendance office, please leave the information requested and a pass will be written for your student
    • Students will pick up their pass (yellow) during passing or during lunch, so when it's time to leave they can show their Teacher the Yellow pass and leave campus. 
    • The Attendance Cleark will NOT call you back for early dismissal requests. Email is preferred communication for questions
