All Bell Schedules (Late Start etc.)
In order to clear absences and tardies for your student, please call the Attendance Office at 760 436-6136 ext. 6008 and press #2. Absences MUST be cleared within 48 hours either by written note or by telephone message.
If your student was marked absent by mistake: Please have your student come to the Attendance Office to obtain a slip to take to the teacher so the absence can be corrected. PLEASE do not leave a telephone message on the above telephone line in these cases.
Off Campus Passes
You may request an Off-Campus Pass by writing a note and asking your student to bring it to the Attendance Office either before school, at break or at lunch. You may also call the Attendance Office message line 24 hours in advance at (760) 436-6136 ext. 6008 and press #1. Please state:
- Your student’s name and ID#
- Date, time, and reason the student is leaving
- Whether or not the student will be returning to school
Please make sure to tell your student to pick up the pass either before school, at break or at lunch. Off-Campus Passes will not be delivered to the classroom. ALL STUDENTS leaving campus during the school day must have an off-campus pass in hand or their absence will not be excused. Our phone message system is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Evenings are the best time to call and leave a message.
Students Who Are Ill
If a student needs to leave school because he or she is sick, they need to go directly to the Health Office to obtain the Off-Campus Pass. Teachers will provide passes for students to leave class to see the Health Tech. PLEASE do not come to the Attendance Office in these cases.
Tardies must be cleared by the student’s parent. The student may bring a signed note from the parent, or the parent may call the Attendance Office at 760-436-6136 ext. 6008 and leave a message. Students arriving more than 30 minutes late without a written note from a parent or a phone call from a parent that is excusing the tardy will be considered a truancy. Just like absences tardies must be cleared within 48 hours.
Your adherence to the La Costa Canyon Attendance Policy is appreciated!
