What to Do If Your Child Is Going to Be Absent
Fill out the Report an Absence Online form and hit submit. This is the easiest and most efficient way to report your child's absence. This information is needed for our attendance reports and state funding. The State auditors are very thorough in checking these records. Let us know if your child has a contagious disease, confirmed by your child's physician, such as chicken pox, measles, mumps, or strep throat. We will watch for symptoms in other students and notify their parents when appropriate. Please provide the Health Office with a note from your physician indicating the diagnosis and releasing your child to return to school. A child who was absent due to a fever must be fever-free for 24 hours before returning to school. If your child has been absent due to a lice outbreak, please have him/her meet with the Health Clerk before returning to class. Please notify the school of any anticipated absence due to out-of-town trips, family emergencies or medical or dental appointments. Every day your child is absent, the District loses $35. The funds from the state that we receive for students' daily attendance will NOT be paid for either excused or unexcused absences. Please see that your child attends school every day. If your child needs to be out of school, please seriously consider making a contribution of $35 to the Redondo Beach Unified School District for each day your child has a non-medical absence. Absence reimbursement contributions can be submitted directly to the front office. Thank you for your consideration.
