Report an Absence

925-682-8000 ext 85708

or email

If possible, please DO NOT call the school office directly

or send a note with your student.  The attendance hotline

number or email is the best way to report your student's absence.


Remember to:

  • State student's name 
  • Your name 
  • Relationship to the student
  • Date(s) of absence 
  • Reason for the absence  

If an absence isn't cleared within 72 hours or no reason is given, your child will be marked truant.

School funding comes directly from student's daily attendance.  When they attend school, even for a portion of the day, we receive full funding for that day.  When your student does not attend at all, for any reason, we receive no funding.  


Please schedule family trips for times the students are already scheduled to be off, whenever possible. When a dental or doctor appointment is during the day, remember that even attending for part of the day the school receives full ADA for that student for that day! Bring the student in before or after the appointment… will help them and it will help Ayers Elementary.


Excusable reasons are illness or injury, doctor or dental appointments, funerals and religious holidays. Family events and vacations are not excusable and will be recorded as an unexcused absence.


All absences must be cleared with a phone call, note or e-mail within 72 hours otherwise your student will be marked truant.
