Attendance Handbook


Reporting an Absence

If your student is absent do not call the school.
There are 3 options for reporting your student absent.

A parent signed note or a FAX can be provided with
the following information:

  • student’s first and last name
  • student’s grade level
  • reason for absence
  • parent/guardian name
  • parent/guardian telephone number

or submit an absence report online.

A note, FAX or online form must be received within 5 days after the first day of absence.
Absences for 3 or more days require a doctor/health provider note.

Absence FAX number:  (408) 267-5757


Signing Your Student Out

A parent or guardian must come to the attendance office in person with a picture ID to provide the reason for signing out.
Upon return, the student only must check in at the attendance office.

Parents: We want to hear from you!

As part of San José Unified’s commitment to prepare today’s students to be the thinkers, leaders, and creators of tomorrow, we’d like to hear your thoughts about our schools and your child’s education experience.
