Welcome to the Attendance Department here at La Loma Jr. High School. Our staff is here to assist students and families with any questions or concerns regarding their attendance.
A phone call or note from the parent/guardian is required to excuse absences that are verified in accordance with the Education Code and Board Policy (C.A.C Title 5, Sec. 420). The attendance clerk can be reached at (209) 574-1906.
Excused absences allow the student to make up work that occurred during the absence (2 school days for each day missed). Responsibility for requesting missed work lies with the student. Any absence must be cleared within 48 hours or the student will be given an unexcused absence.
If a student needs to leave campus for a medical or court appointment, we ask that the parent/guardian send a note or come to the office the morning of the appointment and sign the student out. If a student brings a note it must be signed in pen, include the full name of the student, state the date(s) and reason the student needs to check out early.
Students with perfect attendance during a month will automatically be entered in monthly drawings to receive a gift card.
Students who have 1 or fewer absences for the year by the April 2nd deadline are eligible to attend a field trip to Laser Quest in May. This fun adventure will involve laser tag games and some instruction about light reflection, refraction, and light waves. Good attendance pays off! See Gabby in the attendance office for more details. See you at Laser Quest!
