It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to correct any and all absences with the attendance office per **AR 5113 via a telephone call.  Failure to do so will result in a CUT for each absence.                       

Emails are not permitted to report any past or future absences.
**AR 5113 States that all absences which are not cleared within two (2) days after a student's return to school shall be recorded as unexcused (CUT).  (see Truancy)
Each absence due to illness must be called in daily with the reason the student is out, these cannot be precleared.  Please refer to Full/Partial day absences as well. 
Per AR5113, each student is permitted 10 personal illnesses for the calendar school year (Each partial day is calculated as 1 illness).  Five (5) or more consecutive days of illness will require a doctor’s note.   After exceeding 10 absences due to illness, each absence due to illness is marked as unexcused unless a doctor's note is provided within 2 school days upon returning.  
EXCESSIVE ILLNESS: An administrator or designee may call a parent conference for each student when the student has accumulated then (10) absences due to illness.  After the 10th absence, a Chronic Illness form may be requested by the parent from the school nurse and will be kept on file for the current school year.  A medical note for each subsequent absence due to illness will be required to mark the absence as being excused.  Failure to provide a medical note will result in the absence being unexcused.   (SRVUSD District Board Policy and Administrative Regulations BP 5113.1, AR 5113.1) 
General Illness Guidelines:
We strive to create a healthy learning environment for our students, so it is important not to send your child to school if they are sick. If your child is experiencing a cold, congestion, upset stomach, temperature, or just not feeling well (even if they are not running a fever), please keep them at home.  Please contact your school nurse with any questions or concerns.
Your child may be excluded from school per California Education Code section §48210-48214 and section §49451. “Whenever there is a reason to believe that the child is suffering a recognized contagious or infectious disease, they shall be sent home and not be permitted to return until the school authorities are satisfied that any contagious disease does not exist.”
