THE IMPORTANCE OF REGULAR SCHOOL ATTENDANCE

It is an absolute necessity that students attend school on a regular basis. Studies originating from a variety of sources indicate that there is a direct correlation between education and income. If your child's success in life is important to you, it is critical that he/she gets a good basic education. This can only occur if regular school attendance is maintained from Kindergarten through 12th grade (13 years of schooling). The following chart is an example of possible education days versus actual education days for students who are frequently absent, based on 13 years of education with 180 days of instruction per year.

Students who miss 10% or more actually lose more than time. They lose out on skill development, practice, and standards mastery, which can impede their ability to pass the California High School Exit Exam. Students who regularly miss school, miss out on what other students in their classes are getting. They begin to feel that they will never catch up, so why should they try?

Regular attendance does not guarantee success, perfect scores, high grades, or a high school diploma, but it does give students the best possible chance. In this life, basic skills are offered "free" only once. The failure to take advantage of a free public education when it is available is very costly. Don't cheat you children or yourself. See to it that you get your money's worth the first time around. Promote education in your home and see to it that the leaders of tomorrow - your children - are the best this world has to offer. You are the first and most important teacher in your children's lives. Please teach them the value of learning.

School Dress and Grooming

Parents and/or guardians have the primary responsibility to see that students are properly attired for school. School district personnel have the responsibility of maintaining proper and appropriate conditions conducive to learning. Hence, the following guidelines will be implemented in all district schools and at all regular school activities:
 
1. Shoes must be worn at all times. A substantial sole is required and enclosed toe and heel footwear is highly encouraged.

2. Clothing shall be sufficient to conceal undergarments at all times, including when the student is seated.

3. Clothing that is sheer, see-through, fish net, or form-fitting such that the shape, color, or form of the undergarments may be seen, including leotards or swimwear worn outside of the appropriate physical education class or extra-curricular activity, tube tops, halter tops, spaghetti straps, off-the-shoulder, and/or any strapless top or dress; and/or any top or dress that reveals the midriff, breast, shoulders, or back is prohibited. Shoulder straps on garments must be at least 2 inches in width.

4. Pants my not fall more than 2 inches below the natural waistline.

5. Skirts or shorts shorter than the student’s arm length to the fingertips when the student is standing straight are prohibited.

6. Hats, caps and other head coverings shall not be worn indoors. Exceptions may be granted for medical reasons.

7. Clothing, jewelry, or accessories with obscene statements or designs are prohibited.

8. Clothing, jewelry, and personal items (backpacks, fanny packs, gym bags, water bottles, etc.) shall be free of writing, pictures, and any other images that are crude, vulgar, profane, or sexually suggestive, which bear drug, alcohol, or tobacco company advertising, promotions, and likenesses, are prohibited.

9. Earrings, jewelry, or accessories that present a safety hazard to the wearer or others are prohibited.

10. Sunglasses may be worn on campus outside the class. Prescription sunglasses may be worn in class only with a written explanation from an ophthalmologist or optometrist stating why clear or light-sensitive lenses cannot be worn (or with advance permission from the teacher for temporary periods when regular glasses are lost or mislaid).

11. Hair shall be clean and neatly groomed. Hair may not be sprayed by any coloring that would drip when wet, rub off, or create a disruption to the school day.
