!!Welcome Parents to the start of the our Virtual School Year 2020-2021!!
During such unprecedented times, DUSD wants you to be aware we are documenting a Student's Daily attendance during virutal school !!!! Please see below the message from DUSD to help you better understand how attendance is recorded and how absentism is handled.
If your child is unable to attend class please call our attendance line at 925-307-1950 ext 2 and leave a detailed message with your Child's name (please spell it out clearly), Student id #, Teacher name and Reason for absence. This process has not changed with whether school is in person or virtual.
We also understand that your child's may have issues with wifi, canvas and/or gmail and is unable to get onto to her/his classroom. The District recognizes this problem and we are accounting for such absences. But in order to account for such absences it is very important to call our attendance line and report your child absence due to login/wifi issues. If your child has Login and/or wifi issues and you do not report the same, please note that your child will be marked as unexcused absence. Additionally, when you report such absences it better helps our school and the district to streamline the services you need to help your child attend school.
Finally, once you have called our attendance line and reported the absence, please also email your child's teacher and keep her/him updated. This is to ensure that your child may receive his/her school work/homework activities etc., to know what to make-up during his/her absence.
If at anytime you have any questions on the attendance process, please email our Attendance Secretary, Jennifer True - firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a detailed message on our attendance line - 925-307-1950 ext 2
