EARLY OUT REQUESTS - LEAVING SCHOOL EARLY: (949)234-5568

 

All STUDENTS MUST SIGN OUT ATTENDANCE

PRIOR TO LEAVING CAMPUS

 
  • If a student needs to leave early, before the school day is over, a parent/guardian must notify the Attendance Office by phone, email or parent note prior to the beginning of class.
  • Students are responsible for picking up an Off-Campus Pass at the Attendance Office prior to the student leaving campus.
  • It is extremely busy in the Attendance Office during break and lunch – It is highly recommended to call the Attendance Office in the morning to arrange for your student to leave early.
  • Students may only pick up Early Out passes during non-class time: BEFORE SCHOOL, AT BREAK, AND DURING LUNCH.
  • If a student becomes ill during class time and wishes to go home, the student should ask the teacher for a pass to the Nurse’s Office. Arrangements to go home will be coordinated through the nurse.

TRUANCIES: (94)234-5933

 
  • Any unverified absence that is not cleared with the Attendance Office within 3 school days becomes a truancy.
  • If your student receives a truancy letter/message, this absence must now be verified through the truancy hotline.
  • Please use your Parent Portal to check your student’s attendance records and update any contact information.
 
Please call the truancy hotline at (949) 234-5933 to clear any truancies

ATTENDANCE CORRECTION FORM

 
If your student is marked absent for a period in error: Please have your student pick up a blue Attendance Correction Form in Attendance. The student needs to complete the form, obtain the teacher signature, and return the completed form to the Attendance Dept. in order for Attendance to make the correction.

SJHHS FINALS WEEK EARLY OUT POLICY

 
To minimize class disruption during finals, students may not be called out early to leave during class test periods.  If a student needs to leave campus early, the student may pick up their pass from Attendance, either before school or during break, and may leave campus early during the breaks only. 
 
Please plan ahead with this policy in mind.
DELIVERING MESSAGES OR PERSONAL ITEMS

DELIVERING MESSAGES OR PERSONAL ITEMS

To maintain a learning environment that is uninterrupted, the Attendance Office does not deliver items or messages to students. Students are responsible for bringing everything with them at the start of the day. This includes homework, study materials, uniforms/sports equipment, and lunches. We appreciate your understanding that valuable instructional time should not be interrupted.
 
ITEMS ARE LEFT AT YOUR OWN RISK!
