Please find information outlining the requirements for an excused absence below:


The District states that an EXCUSED ABSENCE is defined as:


  1. Illness or injury of the student which necessitates the absence of the student.  This does not include absence due to illness or injury of the parents, siblings, or child of the student.  It refers to the student only.
  2. Student attendance at a medical, dental, optometric, counseling (for mental or emotional issues) or chiropractic appointment.  The appointment must be for the student, not for any other person.
  3. Student attendance at the funeral service of an immediate family member.  Family member is defined as; mother, father, brother, sister, grandparent, any other relative living in the immediate household.  Aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins are not immediate family members unless they live in the same household.  Funeral excused absences are limited to no more than one day for a funeral within California and three days for a funeral outside of the State.
  4. To obtain required immunizations
  5. Exclusion from school i.e. head lice, lack of immunizations or physical examinations.
  6. Appearance in court
  7. Observance of a holiday or ceremony of his/her religion


UNEXCUSED ABSENCE All absences for any reason not included under excused absences should be defined as unexcused.


TARDY A student is tardy when he/she arrives at school after it has begun.  An excused tardy is defined as medical, dental, optometric, counseling or chiropractic appointments.
