Attendance Matters, every school day counts

Attendance Clerk / Secretaria de asistencia

(510) - 723 - 3830 Ext. 9 /


If your child is absent call the school office before 9:00 am.

Si su hijo está ausente llame a la oficina de la escuela antes de las 9:00 am.


You must provide:

  • Child's full name (and spelling)

  • Date(s) of absence

  • Reason for absence

  • Caller's Name and relationship to student

  • Phone number where you can be reached

Debe proporcionar:

  • Nombre completo del niño (y ortografía)

  • Fecha(s) de la ausencia

  • Motivo de la ausencia

  • Nombre de la persona que llama y relación con el estudiante

  • Número de teléfono donde se le puede localizar



Studies show that there is a direct correlation between good health, school attendance and student achievement.  Your student must work twice as hard the next day to catch up on missed instruction and missed assignments including homework.  Your teacher loses class time by having to repeat lessons for students who were absent.  Schools do not receive funding from the State of California for students who are absent from school.  This includes all absences, even those related to illness, medical, or dental appointments.  When schools lose funding, kids lose music, learning technology, summer school and smaller classes.



Chronic absence in Kindergarten is associated with lower academic performance in 1st grade among all children and also could predict the lowest levels of educational achievement at the end of fifth grade.

By 6th grade, missing 20% (or two months of school) is a critical warning sign of school drop-out.

By 9th grade, missing 20% of school can be a better predictor of drop-out than 8th grade test scores.
