No pupil is permitted to leave school at recess or any other time before the regular hour of closing without the approval of the school principal or designee. Violations will be considered as truancies (E.C. 48200).

At the secondary school level, parents should send a note with their student explaining the absence on the day they return. (E.C.46012; C.A.C.306). Absences that are not cleared within 3 days shall be recorded as in-excusable.
