Our automated system will contact the home of every student with one or more unverified absence for that day. Please return the call to verify or excuse the absence. You have only 3 days to excuse the absence. The attendance office can be reached at (510 818-4350). The school may also apply other consequences for unexcused absences. A physician’s note is required to excuse more than 10 absences due to illness. Students may be referred to a School Attendance Review Board (SARB) hearing for not complying with the attendance policy.
