To excuse students, call or come in no later than 72 hours (3 school days) from the date of absence. A maximum of 9 (state recognized) excused days per school year without a Professional/Medical note is allowed. On the 3rd day of a non-state recognized excuse, the student is truant.

Attendance Procedures VUSD

In compliance with AB 1698, the 1st notification of truancy letter is sent home when three unexcused absences have occurred. The 2nd and 3rd letters are sent at six and nine unexcused absences. If you receive an attendance letter, please call the attendance office.

A student with more than nine unexcused absences may be scheduled for a hearing with the district's School Review Board (SARB). Absence verification should be provided to the school within 72 hours (3 school days) to notify the school's attendance office with the reason for the absence (VUSD Board Policy 5005D). A student who has been excused from school 10 days by phone will be required to provide a written verification on a medical, legal, or bereavement professional letterhead for all additional absence.

Board Policy on Early Release

Vista Unified Administrative Regulation No. 5142 on School Safety now requires all schools to release students, prior to school dismissal, only to an adult in possession of a valid, government issued photo ID who is the student's parent or guardian, or is on the emergency card with approval from the parent or guardian. This will be accomplished by a confirmation phone call from the school based on the information found on the Emergency Contact Card. If the parent cannot reached, the student will not be released. We apologize for any future inconvenience this may bring to you or your student.

Póliza de la Mesa Directiva con respecto Recoger Estudiantes

El Reglamento Administrativo No 5142 del Distrito Escolar de Vista, bajo Seguridad Escolar, exige que todas las escuelas permitan salir a los estudiantes (antes de la salida de clases) sólo con un adulto en posesión de una tarjeta de identificación con fotografía emitida por el gobierno, que sea el padre o tutor del estudiante, o esté en la tarjeta de emergencia con la aprobación de los padre/tutor. Esta solicitud se confirmara con una llamada al padre/tutor registrados en la tarjeta de emergencia. Si no se logra comunicar con el padre/tutor legal, el estudiante no podrá salir del plantel. Nos disculpamos por cualquier inconveniencia que esto pueda traer a usted o a su hijo.
