Attendance and Tardiness
When absences or tardiness occurs, parents/guardians should notify the school office by calling the attendance line (510) 582-4207 ext. 4490 by no later than 9:00 AM.
Please take advantage of the options to prepay your student's meal accounts. Prepaid meal accounts help the lunch lines move faster and gives students more time to eat, relax, and play. It also gives you the peace of mind of not having to worry about looking for lunch money every day or worry that it might get lost, stolen or used for other things other than lunch.
You can always bring money personally or send it with your student. Please place it in an envelope marked clearly with your student's name, their ID #, and their teacher's name. Turn in prepaid deposits to the school office.
If you choose to bring money to school personally or send it with your student, please put it in an envelope clearly marked with the student's first and last name, their ID #, their teacher's name, and the amount enclosed.
We look forward to a great school year!
