Attendance


Compulsory attendance laws require that parents send their children to school. The law further states that a student must attend every scheduled session of every class, even if failure is imminent. The law applies to all students until they reach 18 years old. Once a student becomes 18 years old, they become a guest at Westview and can be withdrawn from school if their academic progress, attendance, or behavior is not acceptable.


Attendance Hotline at (858) 780-2020

Option 1: Student has an appointment
Option 2: All day absence

Note: If your student has a medical appointment (i.e. doctor, physical therapy, dentist, orthodontist, etc.), please provide a medical excuse from the Health Care Provider.

In order to medically excuse your student's absence or tardy, the State of California requires verification from your health care provider. Medically excused absences are coded differently than regular excuses. Please ask the health care provider for a note for school before leaving the medical or dental office. Bring the note to the Attendance Window so we can update your attendance.

Please provide medical documentation from the health care provider excusing your student from class. Students may bring note to the Attendance Window upon arrival on-campus or scan and email to wvhsattendance@powayusd.com for our records.
 

This contract allows the student to complete work that he/she would be doing if they were in class and helps the school to continue to receive funding from the state.  The student needs to work with his/her teacher closely to complete all his/her assignments.

The threshold for implementing an OCIS contract is limited to a minimum of 3 days through a maximum of 20 school days. The 20-school day limit for OCIS contracts is cumulative for the entire school year.

At least 5 school days of notice is required to set up an OCIS Contract. When there is a planned absence of three days or more, please contact to Ritsuko Huth: rhuth@powayusd.com

*A family who plans to keep their student out of school beyond the 20 days must enroll their child in Poway Home Education Program (PHEP: TK through 8th grade) or New Directions (6th through 12th grade).

Please refer to the PUSD website for more information and contact the student’s counselor.
