If your child will be absent or late to school, please call the school to verify the reason for the absence or tardy.
THE TRINITY HIGH SCHOOL MASS NOTIFICATION SYSTEM for PARENTS AND/OR GUARDIANS
Whenever your student is absent or tardy to one or more classes, the automated phone system should telephone your home phone number the evening of the absence or tardy and leave a message for you to contact the school. IF NO VERIFICATION IS RECEIVED THE ABSENCE WILL BE RECORDED AS UNEXCUSED. By calling the school the morning of your students absence to verify the absence, your name should be removed from the automated calling system and you should not receive a call
STUDENTS LEAVING CAMPUS
All students MUST check out of school in the office prior to leaving campus. Students are not to call their parents/guardians from a cell phone and get picked up without first checking out with the office.
Why is ATTENDANCE so important?
Regular attendance is vital to a student’s success in school. Grades may be lowered due to absences, tardiness, or truancies. All students are expected to be on campus or involved in school-sponsored activities for the full extent of each school day. Parents and students are reminded that absence from any part of the school day is undesirable and should be avoided if at all possible by planning appointments and vacations at times that do not conflict with school. Attendance is reported to the office every period. If school must be missed, notify the school before 8:30 a.m. Please make every effort to have students attend at least part of the school day. Students who miss an entire school day for any reason (including illness) are not included in the formula for state funding for that day. (Ed. Code 48205) The loss of funding affects the ability of the school to maintain school programs and affects the greater achievement of our students.
