Time your student needs to be released

Students leaving campus for any reason without being checked out through the attendance office will be reported as truant.
Returning to School during school hours: Upon the student’s return to school on the same day, he/she must sign in at the Attendance Department, and pick up a Re-Admit slip in order to obtain credit for his/her remaining classes. You may send your student with a note or call the 24-Hour line at 951-695-4205 to clear your students late arrival. This also needs to be done within 14 days or the late arrival will remain truant. Please note: Medical documentation is needed to clear a tardy to 1st period.
Citizenship Grade Lowering: TVUSD attendance policy has an absence limit of nine (9) days per period class per semester for unexcused absences. Students exceeding the absence limit may receive disciplinary action of grade lowering in citizenship as set forth by TVUSD BP 5113A-D and AR5113A-D (www.tvusd.k12.ca.us). The classroom teacher is the final authority.
Students withdrawing from CHS due to a move or other TVUSD school placement need to contact Michelle Osborn in the Attendance Department at 695-4200 Ext. 154. We will need the name of the new school or city/state and the last day of attendance at CHS. Please have your student come to the Attendance Department before school on his/her last day of attendance to receive withdrawal documentation.
