Welcome to the Attendance Department here at Gregori High School. Our staff is here to assist students and families with any questions or concerns regarding their attendance. Here are a few important highlights:
A phone call or note from the parent/guardian is required to excuse absences that are verified in accordance with the Education Code and Board Policy (C.A.C. Title 5, Sec. 420).
Excused absences allow the student to make up work that occurred during the absence (2 school days for each day missed).
Responsibility for requesting missed work lies with the student.
Should the attendance office receive the phone call prior to 1:30 p.m. on the same day that the student is absent, he/she will not be required to come to the attendance office for a re-admit to class. The teachers will receive a computer printout each morning indicating the absences from the prior day.
If a phone call is not received on the day of the absence, the student will be required to come to the attendance office upon their return for a re-admit slip. If a student brings a note to clear the absence, these notes must be in pen, include the full name of the student, state the date(s) and reason for absence, and have a parent/guardian signature.
Leaving Campus Early
If a student needs to leave campus for a medical or court appointment, we ask that the parent/guardian send a note or come into the Administration Office the morning of the appointment and sign their student out, parents can email the SLC contact above to complete a check out for your student. Students will need to come to the Administration office in the A building before the time they need to leave and pick up an off-campus pass. Messages will not be delivered to students during class hours.
We would also like to remind students and parents that students who leave campus for any reason before the end of their school day (including 7th period classes and after school sports) without checking out with the attendance office are considered truant.
Our goal is to provide support to families, students, and staff to ensure that all students graduate and have the ability to succeed in the global community.
We encourage families to work with the school site to resolve any concerns you may have regarding our areas of responsibility. If you are unable to resolve concerns with the site, please feel free to contact us here at Child Welfare and Attendance. We work diligently to support families and sites to resolve concerns enabling students to have a positive and successful educational experience.
