Attendance Team (report an absence or tardy)

Attendance Matters!

To report an absence either call the attendance team on 619-560-4610 ext. 3011, or send email to [email protected]

Please include the following:

  • Student’s Full Name and ID number
  • Date of the absence 
  • Pickup time  - or absent all day
  • Reason for the absence 
  • Parent/guardian name (must be an approved contact in PowerSchool Student Profile)
  • Parent/guardian contact phone number
  • Parent email address (must be an address on file for a student contact in PowerSchool)

Please give at least 2 hours notice for an early dismissal request, if possible. If an emergency happens, and it is not possible to plan ahead, we ask for your patience while we process your request and work as quickly as possible to retrieve the student. Students must show their early dismissal pass (blue slip) before leaving campus.


Parents can check if an absence was reported and coded appropriately using the PowerSchool parent portal. If a student was marked absent by mistake they should contact their teacher. After a review of their records the teacher can submit a change request.
