Attendance Reporting

Attendance Reporting

RECORDING ATTENDANCE IS THE LAW. PLEASE REMEMBER AND RESPECT THAT OUR OFFICE STAFF IS THE MESSENGER, AND SCHOOL ATTENDANCE IS A LEGAL REQUIREMENT.

It is mandatory that you report all absences on a daily basis regardless of the reason. 

ABSENCES MUST BE CLEARED WITHIN 72 HOURS OR THE ABSENCE TURNS INTO UNEXCUSED.     

Parents, please email sesattendance@lvusd.org to report your child's absence.

Please include:

  • your child's name
  • teacher's name
  • date(s) of the absence 
  • reason for the absence
The law requires your student to attend school. It is not a district or school policy, it is the law. Public education is compulsory. Family vacations should coincide with the School District's recess days.
If your child misses more than three days without a valid excuse (illness), you may receive a letter from Lupin Hill and then possibly, the School Attendance Review Board (SARB) about truancy.
Tardiness is also tracked.
If an absence or tardiness pattern continues, you may be required to attend a SARB meeting with the Los Angeles County District Attorney. We must take school attendance very seriously. 
 
Research on the effect of school attendance on students can be found at attendance works.org/research. The school district calendar can be found on the  LVUSD website
Feel free to contact the front office for additional information.
