Report an Absence

Fletcher Elementary Attendance


Although we want students to be in school each day for class, we know that absences will happen. It is important that parents report their student's absence within 24 hours.

California Ed Code requires every child between the ages of 6 and 18 years to attend school every day. Studies show that student attendance increases student achievement. Parents/guardians are responsible for their child’s school attendance and must notify the school if their child is not in school and why.  

A student will be excused from school when the absence is due to:

• Personal illness or injury

• Having medical, dental, optometric or chiropractic services rendered

• Attending the funeral service of an immediate family member; one day if the service is in California and three days if outside of California

Other excused reasons include a court appearance, attendance at a funeral service, or observance of a religious holiday or ceremony.  All other absences will be unexcused.

Absences can be reported via our online option or through phone or email. Please let us know if you have any questions and thank you for your support.
