***ATTENDANCE TIPS FROM THE OFFICE ***
If your child is absent you must call 707-522-3310 or email email@example.com with your student’s name, grade level, and the reason for their absence. Valid absence reasons are: illness, medical appointment, family emergency, and Independent Study.
Not notifying the office of a valid absence can lead to your child having unexcused absences, which can lead to truancy.
3rd Tuesday of each month at 6:00 PM
POCS asks that parents attend at least 6 Parent Club meetings during the year and this goes towards your parent hours too! These meetings keep you informed, build relationships with staff and other parents, and give you an opportunity to help decide what the group does.
Avoid the Lost and Found: Label all coats, sweaters, and lunch containers with your child’s first and last name.
