Attendance Information

24-Hour Absence Hotline: 1-858-484-8087

Regular School Hours: M, T, W, F – 7:45 AM – 2:05 PM, Th 7:45 AM – 12:25 PM
Attendance: It is important you keep us informed about your child when they are not in school. When your child is absent, please call the school to inform us of the reason for the absence each day they are not in attendance. If your child will be absent from school due to anything other than illness for 5 days or more, please contact the school for a study contract. Our attendance phone number is (858) 484-8087.

Please let the front office know your student will be absent. If you inform your student's teacher, they may not contact the office and you will get a call out.

Like absences, tardies affect classroom learning time and should be avoided. Students who are late to school must check in through the office. Medical appointments are considered excused tardies. All other tardies are unexcused.


Students will report to the playground and line up with their teacher by 7:40 AM. After the first day, playground supervision will begin at 7:25 AM, fifteen minutes before school begins. Students in grades 1-5 should walk to the back playground through the gates in front of the school. Please do not have your child arrive before 7:25 AM, as there will be no adult supervision until that time. Students will line up in their assigned area on the playground at 7:40 AM. The tardy bell rings and school begins promptly at 7:45 AM. Students are expected to be in their seats ready to learn by that time. If your child arrives after the 7:45 AM bell, he/she will need to come to the front office for a late slip before going to class.


Kindergarten and TK students will proceed to the kindergarten playground.


At dismissal time parents should meet their children in the front of the school or at the lunch tables. Please do not meet your children inside the school or by the classroom, as it is a distraction to the learning environment. Remember our goal is to maximize instructional time for student learning. It also helps decrease congestion in the hallways.
