Attendance

Attendance/Absence

Children are expected to be in school unless they are ill. Please call the school attendance line at 949-7753 to report an absence. If this is not possible, a note indicating the reason for the absence is required when your child returns to school. Illness and bereavement are the only excused absences. We appreciate your efforts in having your child attend school any portion of a day when full attendance is not possible.

 

Absence Reporting   909-949-7753

  • To report your child’s absence, please call the Magnolia Elementary Attendance Line.
  • Leave a message stating your child’s name, date and the reason why they are absent. 
  • Your child’s absence will be cleared by the end of the school day.
  • Absences should be reported no later than 9 am on the day of the absence. 
  • Please remember it is the parent’s responsibility to report absences accordingly to avoid truancies.  Thank you for your cooperation!

Independent Study

It is expected that all family vacations will be scheduled during the yearly scheduled instructional breaks. This is to ensure that your child has no disruption to his/her instructional program. However; if your child will miss five or more days, you may request an independent study contract. This is to be done a week ahead of your scheduled departure so the teacher has time to prepare the appropriate material for your child.

 

Appointments/Releases

We urge you to schedule medical and other appointments so they do not conflict with class time. If it is necessary that students leave the school grounds before the regular dismissal time, send a note to the teacher indicating the time and reason. Students will only be called out of class when the parent arrives in the office so they don’t miss valuable instruction time. Students must be signed out in the office before leaving. They will only be released to their parents or someone authorized by their parents. If they return to school following an appointment, they must check in at the office before going to class.
 

Keeping Students After School

A teacher may request that a child remains after school for extra help or for disciplinary reasons. Students may be detained after school for not more than one hour beyond the close of the maximum day. The teacher will notify parents prior to detaining a child. No bus transportation will be provided.
