According to Education Code 48200, a student shall be excused from school when the absence is:
A student absent, under the above guidelines, shall be allowed to complete all assignments and tests missed within a reasonable period of time, and be given full credit. The teacher of any class from which a student is absent shall determine the tests and assignments, which shall be reasonably equivalent to, but not necessarily identical, to the test and assignments that the student missed.
For purposes of this section, attendance at religious retreats shall not exceed four hours per semester.
Washington Unified Board of Education has established a closed campus policy at all school sites. Students may not leave campus at any time during the school day. This is for the security of the campus and to protect your student's health, safety, and welfare.
Any parent or guardian who fails to ensure their student's attendance may be guilty of an infraction and can be punishable as follows: $100 for the first conviction; $250 for the second conviction; and $500 for the third conviction. A parent or guardian may be placed in a parent education program or counseling program in lieu of a fine. A willful violation of a court order directing that a student must be enrolled in a school or program can mean a $1,000 fine. (Ed Code 48239)
