All students are required by
Arizona State Law to attend school. The Alhambra School District defines
excess absences as absences more than 10% of the days in membership for
the school year. This excludes absences due to certified illness,
disease or accident. The office will phone home on all unexcused
absences from school. It is the student’s responsibility to make up all
work missed during an absence. Academic grades may suffer as a result of
excessive absences or tardies. Please call our school office, at (602)
841-1403, with any questions or concerns.
students line up at 7:20 a.m. School starts at 7:30 a.m. for all
students and ends at 1:30 p.m. for kindergarten and first grade, and
2:30 p.m. for second and third grade. Students are not allowed on campus
before 6:50 a.m. because there is no supervision.
- Parents are to call the attendance line, (602) 336-2639, to report all absences and tardies. You may also email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please call before 8:00 a.m.
- Failure to report an absence will result in a phone call from the school to the parent at home or at work.
phone contact has not been made with the school, a note from the parent
must be presented to the homeroom teacher the morning the student
returns to school. The note must contain the student’s name, the date of
the absence, specific reason for absence, and be signed by the parent
- If an absence has not been reported within 48–hours
of the date of occurrence the absence will remain unexcused and will
not be changed.
