  • Date(s) of the absence (month and day)

When your student returns to school they must bring a note* to the attendance office (Room 343 in the Main Office) that includes the following information:

  • Student full name (as registered in school)
  • Date of note
  • Date(s) of the absence(s)
  • Reason for absence

*Verification of student absence(s) accepted from parents/guardians/caregivers. We DO NOT accept e‐mail or fax to report absences.


If your student is absent for three days or more due to illness, they must return with a note from a doctor.


If your student gets sick at school and needs to go home they must first go to the nurse in the Wellness Center. The nurse will call you, and your student may receive a permit to leave.


Please note that absences are either excused or unexcused. The terms of each absence are listed in the SFUSD Student and Family Handbook. The handbook includes additional information regarding attendance and student absences.


Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
