HMS Attendance Policy
ATTENDANCE

HMS believes in the value of regular and participatory attendance. HMS attendance policies are designed to promote regular class participation. The student’s job is not merely to attend class, but to come prepared, to acquire knowledge and contribute to the learning community by sharing ideas, perspectives, and values with others.

Regular attendance is critical to your child's education. Disruptions to your child's school attendance can have a significant impact on his or her academic performance. Both the California Administration Code and the Education Code state that every pupil must attend school regularly. When a child is excessively absent, a parent-teacher-student conference will be held. If the problem continues, a parent-administrator-student conference will be scheduled. Excessive absences may result in referral to the School Attendance Review Board (SARB). Your child should attend school consistently and should be absent only for illness or emergencies. Please do not schedule extended family vacations during school time. State law does not require a teacher to provide make up opportunities for students with an unexcused absence. Absences due to personal reasons such as travel, are considered unexcused absences. Excessive unexcused absences can impact your overall school citizenship and your opportunities to participate in school activities.

EXCUSED ATTENDANCE
The only excused absences are those due to a student’s illness, medical, dental, or other health-related appointments, counseling, attendance at the funeral of an immediate family member, observance of a religious holiday or ceremony, or a court-ordered appearance. School absences for personal reasons such as vacations, oversleeping, car problems, or personal non-health related appointments are considered unexcused absences.

School personnel, in accordance with California Law, will determine whether the absence will be excused. Only excused absences will entitle the student to make up any missed work. A parent note does not automatically excuse an absence. The student must provide a medical note after five consecutive days of absence due to illness.

ANY STUDENT ARRIVING LATE, MUST FIRST REPORT TO THE OFFICE PRIOR TO GOING TO CLASS.
