Acalanes Attendance Procedures
Welcome from the Attendance Office! Whether you're new to our school this year or a returning family, we want to provide the necessary phone numbers and email contacts to guide you on your Acalanes journey.
For your convenience, our message recorder is available 24-hours a day. All absences, including full school day, late zoom arrivals, early zoom departures, and any technical difficulties with zoom which led to your student marked absent in class, need to be called in at 925-280-3973. For consistency purposes, the attendance procedures are the same whether the students are studying virtually or are present on campus.
To Excuse an Absence:
Spell the student's name
State the date, duration, and reason for the absence
Provide the name of the person calling and relationship to student
For Medical / Dental Appointments:
If a student has a scheduled medical or dental appointment that will result in missing class, please call our 24-hour message recorder at the beginning of the day to report your student's absence. If you schedule a same-day appointment, please call the 24-hour message recorder ASAP so we can inform the teacher. After your appointment, email a copy of the appointment slip, receipt, or verification to Tina Gullberg. This will ensure your student's class absence is coded correctly. Your student should also inform their teacher of this absence.

It's the parents' responsibility to call the message recorder for each and every student absence. Please help us by putting the attendance recorder number in your phone. Remember, all absences not cleared within 48-hours are turned to cuts.
The information below will be in effect when students are studying on campus:
ACALANES IS A CLOSED CAMPUS. All students must remain on campus during brunch and lunch as well as the instructional portion of the day. Students who leave campus without prior permission are in defiance of school policy. Such absences cannot be cleared after the fact. It will be recorded as a cut and will result in disciplinary action. Students who must leave for a valid excused reason (medical, dental, court, funeral) must follow the leaving campus procedures that will be restated above once school resumes on campus.
