Attendance and Behavior Policies


All students are required to attend school regularly and on time (CA Educational Code 48200 includes all minors). Parents and guardians are legally obligated to make sure their student(s) attends school every day unless illness or family emergency occurs. Students with ongoing attendance issues will be referred to the state mandated SART (School Attendance Review Team) and SARB (School Attendance Review Board) process. 

The Attendance Office is open from 7:00 am to 4:00 pm. All absences must be confirmed by a parent/guardian or by the adult student. When a student is absent, parents are requested to send a note or call within 48 hours of the absences.

Attendance Office phone numbers: 626-548-5047, 

626-548-5048 or email
