Verifying Your Child’s Absence
Regular attendance plays an important role in student achievement, so it is our desire that students attend classes regularly and have a successful year. It is imperative for each family to maintain regular communication with the attendance office staff.
ABSENCES: Please call the attendance line at (949) 388-5106 or email SHMSsickline@capousd.org the same day as the absence or within 72 hours. When calling the message line, please speak slowly, and provide the following information:
- The date(s) of the absence
- The person calling (name and relationship to the student)
- Your child’s full name
The reason for the absence must be clearly stated:
- Medical appointment
- Court Date
- Religious Event
- Personal Business: any absence not listed above. For example, non-medical appointments, vacations, oversleeping, etc.
An automated phone message is sent out daily for unverified absences. Parents will receive a phone message and an email as a reminder to clear their child’s absence.
Please call 949-388-5106 to verify the reason for your child’s absence or reply to the email message.
Absences not verified after 72 hours become truancies.
