It is important that children be punctual and attend school regularly beginning with the first day of school. Parents who permit unnecessary absences and tardiness are hindering their child’s education. The State of California has set up certain requirements regarding attendance. Each student and his/her parents are held responsible for meeting these requirements. The State requires each scholar to be in school unless his/her absence is excused.
Procedures for Notifying School of Absences
Two Rivers Elementary has an Attendance line (916) 567-5520. It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to call or email for your child before 8:00 a.m. each day a child will be out. If you do not call in your child within three (3) days of the absence, the absence will automatically turn into a truancy and the Student Attendance and Review Board (SARB) process may begin per CA Education Code 48200. An attendance supervisor is allowed to arrest or assume temporary custody of a student who is absent from school without a valid excuse. Continued truancy may result in intervention from the Department of Child Services (CPS) and/or District Attorney.
