With the colder and darker mornings, we have seen more student tardies to Period 1. Please target 7:30 a.m. to drop your child off at school. This will allow them time to enter campus and walk to their Period 1 class in a relaxed mode. In addition, with the colder weather comes the cold and flu season. If your child is running a fever or is contagious it is better to keep them home to recover from their illness.
On Friday, November 1st we will be on a special Homecoming Schedule. School will start and dismiss at the same time as the regular bell schedule, but we will have our Homecoming Fair beginning at the 1:00 p.m. Lunch on that day. If your child chooses not to participate in the fair, they must have an early out permission note from you to leave at the Lunchtime Fair. Notes need to be submitted no later than Thursday, October 31st.
The district generates truancy letters monthly for students who are not attending class/school. The first set of letters will be generated October 21, 2013 and then will continue monthly through-out the school year. For understanding of what truancy is, here is information from LBUSD:
Truant = 3 or more unexcused/unverified absences, lates, or early outs of 30+ minutes in a school year
Example: Student A is unexcused for period 5 Monday, unverified all day absence Tuesday, late 30+ minutes on Thursday. This is considered 3 truancies and would qualify for a letter.
Example: Student B is unverified for period 1, 2, and 5 on Monday and has am unexcused all day absence on Tuesday. This is considered 2 truancies and no letter would be generated.
Letter generation: letters from LBUSD will trigger as truancies are accumulated.
Example: Student A has 3 truancies for school month 3, 0 truancies for school months 4 and 5, 6 truancies for school month 7. Parent/Guardian of Student A would receive 2 letters, one during the week of 11/29 and a second one the week of 3/14. Total days marked absent for the school month 3 notification is 3 truancies and for school month notification 7 is 9 truancies.
