Vacations and Out of Town trips

Parents please keep in mind that the State of California does not consider vacations and out of town trips as excusable absences.

These absences will be reflected in your student’s attendance as unexcused. 

Students Volunteering at the Polls

The California Ed. Code 48200 allows a student to volunteer at the polls if they are age 16 and have at least a 2.5 grade point average.

Attendance office needs a note from the polling coordinator confirming attendance at the poll.

Students need to make sure they bring the confirmation note to the Attendance Office within the 72 hour clearance time. 

Attendance Clearance Policy

1) All excusable absences must be cleared by telephone call or a note from the parent/guardian within 72 hrs (3 days).

2) Medical Note.  No more than 3 consecutive days of absence can be cleared for medical reasons.  A Doctor's note must be provided for more than 3 consecutive days.   
3) Off Grounds Passes for Appointments.  If the parent/guardian is aware of the appointment in advance, PLEASE send a note with the student which indicates the date, time and reason for leaving.  Student must bring the note to the attendance office before school starts in the morning.  The student will then be issued a note to show to their teacher during the appropriate period.  The note will minimize interruptions to the classroom during class time.    
 4) Student’s must have a “Pass to Leave School Grounds” from the office to leave campus.  Student’s leaving campus without a pass cannot be cleared.  Student will receive cuts for periods unexcused.   



If a student has a medical or dental appointment or needs to leave campus for any reason a note must be delivered to the attendance office the morning of the release BEFORE school begins.
The attendance office will give your student a pass to leave at the time indicated on the note. This will eliminate interruptions and distractions to the class. 

If this is a last minute appointment you need to come to the attendance office to sign your student for release.

If your student is returning to school from a medical or dental appointment, please have your student bring the doctor's note to the attendance office so we can clear the absences.

Leaving Campus

Hayward High is a closed campus. Students who must leave campus for medical appointments or other valid reasons must obtain an off grounds pass from the attendance office.  Failure to do so will result in classes missed coded as CUT and appropriate disciplinary actions.  Parents must notify the attendance office in writing the morning of the appointment to allow their student/s to obtain an off grounds pass to leave campus.

Students leaving campus without a pass are subject to be sited by Hayward Police.
