Verifying Your Child’s Absence

Regular attendance plays an important role in student achievement, so it is our desire that students attend classes regularly and have a successful year. It is imperative for each family to maintain regular communication with the attendance office staff.

ABSENCES:  Please call the attendance line at (949) 388-5106 or email SHMSsickline@capousd.org the same day as the absence or within 72 hours. When calling the message line, please speak slowly, and provide the following information:

  • The date(s) of the absence
  • The person calling (name and relationship to the student)
  • Your child’s full name

The reason for the absence must be clearly stated:

  • Illness
  • Medical appointment
  • Funeral
  • Court Date
  • Religious Event
  • Personal Business: any absence not listed above. For example, non-medical appointments, vacations, oversleeping, etc.  

An automated phone message is sent out daily for unverified absences.  Parents will receive a phone message and an email as a reminder to clear their child’s absence.  

Please call 949-388-5106 to verify the reason for your child’s absence or reply to the email message.

Absences not verified after 72 hours become truancies.
