Unexcused Absences

Welcome back! We pray you have had a restful and blessed winter break.

As we continue the new year, here are a few reminders to keep in mind…

  • School begins at 8:20 am, and you are considered tardy if you arrive after 8:30. You must obtain a tardy slip in the office.
  • Absences are considered excused when a doctor’s note is provided. When no doctor’s note is presented, the absence is considered unexcused. Students will be accountable for all classwork, homework, and notes were taken when absent. If, by chance, a quiz, exam, or project is scheduled, the student must complete the task within 24-48 hours of being back. Not being in school is not an excuse for not taking a scheduled test.
  • Grades are final when report cards are published at the end of the quarter. Important dates to note:

Quarter 2 ends Thursday, January 26th

Report Cards will be sent home on Feb 3

Quarter 3 begins Monday, January 30th

Quarter 3 ends Friday, March 24th

  • Please plan vacation days accordingly, so students do not miss crucial learning. The school cannot be held accountable for grades that reflect a student who misses school consistently.

  • Attendance: In accordance with Archdiocesan policy, a student who has been absent fifteen (15) or more days in a quarter will not be issued a report card and must attend summer school. If a child is absent more than thirty (30) or more days during the school year will be retained in the same grade because you have not met the requirements for that grade. The County Board of Education may require principals to report the severance of attendance by any student.

Ausencias Injustificadas

¡Bienvenido de nuevo! Esperamos que haya tenido unas vacaciones de invierno tranquilas y bendecidas.

A medida que continuamos el año nuevo, aquí hay algunos recordatorios para tener en cuenta...

  • La escuela comienza a las 8:20 am y se considera que llega tarde si llega después de las 8:30. Se le pedirá que obtenga un pase de tardanza en la oficina.
  • Las ausencias se consideran justificadas con una nota del médico. Cuando no se presenta una nota del médico, la ausencia se considera injustificada. Los estudiantes serán responsables de todo el trabajo de clase, tareas, notas tomadas en clase cuando no están presentes. Si por casualidad se programa una prueba, un examen y proyectos, es responsabilidad de los estudiantes completar la tarea dentro de las 24-48 horas posteriores a su regreso. No estar en la escuela no es una excusa para no tomar un examen programado.
  • Las calificaciones son finales cuando los reportes de calificaciones se publican al final del trimestre. Fechas importantes a tener en cuenta:

Trimestre 2 termina el jueves 26 de Enero

Los reportes de calificaciones se enviarán a casa el 3 de Febrero

El tercer trimestre comienza el Lunes 30 de Enero

El trimestre 3 finaliza el Viernes 24 de Marzo

  • Planifique los días de vacaciones en consecuencia para que los estudiantes no se pierdan el aprendizaje crucial. La escuela no se hace responsable de las calificaciones que reflejan un estudiante que falta a la escuela constantemente.

  • Asistencia: De acuerdo con la póliza de la Arquidiócesis, un estudiante que haya estado ausente quince (15) o más días en un trimestre no recibirá un reporte de calificaciones y deberá asistir a la escuela de verano. Si un niño se ausenta más de treinta (30) días o más durante el año escolar, será retenido en el mismo grado porque no ha cumplido con los requisitos de su grado. La Junta de Educación del Condado puede exigir a los directores que informen la interrupción de la asistencia de cualquier estudiante.

Counseling Partners of Los Angeles (CPLA)

Once again, the school will be offering a comprehensive school-based counseling program and support services at no additional cost for this service. Parents, teachers, staff, or students themselves can request to see a counselor. An informed consent form needs to be signed by the parent/guardian to begin the process. A signed informed consent form is NOT a request/referral for counseling. However, getting the parental signature ahead of time speeds up the process for our counselors to begin providing counseling to our students. Counselor Jacquline Salvador will be working with us.

This service will begin on Monday, September 12.
