Attendance Office

Attendance Office Overview
The Hamilton Attendance Office is responsible for clearing absences, early leaves, and tardies as well as processing enrollments throughout the year. To clear your student's absence or tardy, please submit a physical excuse note to one of our Office Technicians (Ms. Maritza Torres and Ms. Chanel Wiggins). Physical notes for early leaves must also be submitted on the morning of the early leave. Please be advised that emails and phone calls will no longer be accepted. Failure to submit a note prior to the early leave may result in the delay of picking up your student. To meet district requirements for attendance proficiency, your student must miss no more than 7 full days of school each academic year. Missing three full days or three class periods with no valid excuse can result in their identification as a truant. If you have concerns regarding long-term absences or special circumstances that have affected your student’s attendance, please contact Ms. Mojica. 
Attendance Counselor's Statement
AAs the Pupil Services and Attendance (PSA Counselor), my role is to make sure that every student has what they need to be attending school  and all of their classes on a regular basis. California Ed. Code mandates that all students from the ages of 6 to 18 are enrolled and attending school full-time.
By missing three class periods without a valid  reason, you are considered truant by the district. Our goal at Hamilton is for all students to meet the requirements for attendance proficiency. This requires them to miss no more than 7 full days of school for the entire academic year.
If there are circumstances that prohibit your student from attending, please do not hesitate to contact me.
