YOUR CHILD’S ATTENDANCE IS IMPORTANT: Regular attendance is vital to your child’s success in school, and to the fiscal health of the district. Thank you for helping to ensure that your child attends school every day, unless they are ill. If at all possible, we ask that you schedule medical appointments after school, and that you plan family vacations for days that school is out. Below are some dates that would lend themselves to vacation days. In the event that your child is going to be absent, please call our attendance line at 558-4787 before 9:30 am and leave a voicemail message, indicating your 1) Child’s Full Name, 2) Room Number, and Reason for the Absence. If we don’t hear from you when your child is absent, an auto dialer call will be sent. Thank you!

The school year is off to a great start and we are thrilled to have your student here at Marin. Albany Unified School District is dedicated to success for all students, and regular school attendance is an integral part of that. Attending school every day helps children to be actively engaged in their classrooms. When they are late or absent, they need time to catch up, which can be upsetting in a variety of ways to students. It also requires more from our teachers and staff, as it takes time to get students caught up on the material they missed.
