• ATTENDANCE PROCEDURES

    The Attendance Office is located in the main administration building. 
    Consistent attendance is fundamental and essential to academic success.  

    Please make every effort to ensure that your student attends school every day. 

    When a student is absent for an entire day, the parent/legal guardian must report the absence in a timely manner:

    REPORT THE ABSENCE BY EMAIL TO LCMSATTENDANCE@LVUSD.ORG  to report or verify a partial day, or a full day absence.  Include your name and relationship to the student, the student's name, date of the absence (s), and the reason for the absence.

    • Excused:  Illness, doctor appointment, death in immediate family, funeral, court appointments, and religious holidays. 
    • Unexcused:  Vacations/travel, transportation problems, overslept, sporting events, etc.  Following three unexcused absences, the state requires the school to consider those absences as truancies.
    • Truancy:  Student initiated absence carries consequences that may include some or all of the following:  Saturday Work Program, citation from law enforcement, parent/legal guardian conference, referral to the School Attendance Review Board (SARB), or a school transfer.  

     

    Call or email Debbie Silberberg x 32229 (dsilberberg@lvusd.org) with attendance questions.

    All absences must be cleared within 72 hours or the absence will be considered a truant absence (unexcused) and assignments may not be made up for credit.  The day of the unverified absence parents will be notified by phone and email.  Students deemed truant (in violation of compulsory attendance law) if they have three or more unexcused absences and/or tardies (30 minutes or more in duration) within one school year. (Education Code Section 48260)
