We are required by law to secure an absence excuse from an adult when a child has been absent from school. Please call the school in the morning if your child will not be attending school. Please call 626-441-5850 and then press #1 to report absences.

Any absence for reasons other than illness or a death in the immediate family cases the School District to lose money. Those absences include family trips, family emergencies, and religious observances or retreats. In order to avoid this loss of funds, you may apply for Independent Study, as follows and if the absence will be longer than 5 days:

  1. At least a week in advance of the absence, please report to the office to sign an Independent Study form.
  2. The form will be given to the teacher in order to specify the requirements of the of the Independent Study contract.
  3. Ensure that your child completes the assignment and returns it to the teacher as prescribed on the form.
  4. Assignments are due when the student returns to school.
