    Attendance Matters: When students miss school for reasons other than illness the loss of learning can’t be re-created with make-up work. The state requires that we follow-up on truant students and students with chronic absences. Follow-up includes a phone call or in person meeting and an official truancy letters starting with students with three or more unexcused absences.

    • A truant student (California Education Code § 48260) is a student with 3 or more unexcused absences. 
    • Chronic absence (California Education Code § 60901(c)(1)) is defined as excused absences that total more than 10% of the total days to date. 

    Excused absences include: illness, quarantine under the direction of a health officer, medical appointment, funeral services for a member of the immediate family (limited to 1 day in state and 3 days out of state); court appearances, observance of a religious holiday, up to 5 absences for employment in the entertainment industry, and religious retreat (4 hours per semester). Trips and vacations are not deemed to be excused absences.

    SAFETY

    Safety Reminders - 

    • If students are not picked up within 10 minutes after dismissal our protocol is to bring them to the office. When students are in the office we will call home. We don’t have the capacity to have students wait for pick-up beyond 10 minutes after dismissal. 

     

    Lockdown Drill: This past Wednesday we had our monthly emergency drill. This month we practiced a lockdown drill. Next month we will practice an earthquake drill that will include an evacuation. During these drills we make sure that students feel safe and understand it is a drill. 

     

    Each School site in the Moraga School District has a Site Emergency Plan. The plan guides our actions during emergency situations. Once a month we hold practice drills for various situations in our plan. Here is a link to the Moraga School District Comprehensive Safety Plan.
