Absence Reporting Procedure

It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to report their student’s absences. Only parents/guardians can excuse a student’s absence. Parents/guardians must call or email the School Office on the first day of absence.

When a child is absent because of illness or for a doctor or dental appointment, call or email the school office 650-320-8106 or  hooverattendance@pausd.org before 8:30 a.m. on the day of the absence and indicate the reason. If contact is not made, the school requires the returning student bring a note signed by the parent/guardian.  In a situation where a health condition begins to impact attendance and learning, a referral to the District Health Services Office may be initiated.

If a student is absent from class for any reason and the absence has not been cleared with the school staff, parents/guardians will receive a call from school staff. Any absence not cleared by the student’s parent/guardian within 72 hours will be treated as an unexcused absence.

Detailed student attendance information is available for parents/guardians to review through the Infinite Campus Parent/Student Portal.
