Attendance

Regular attendance plays an important role in student achievement and is an important life skill that will help students
graduate from college and keep a job. When students do not attend school regularly, they miss out on fundamental
reading and math skills and the chance to build a habit of good attendance. Absences can be minimized by scheduling medical, dental, and other appointments after school or when school is not in session. Vacations should be planned around holidays. Parents must make school attendance a priority. 

It is the responsibility of the parent to notify the school office of any absences or tardies in written or verbal form within 3 school days. Students absences may be verified online by Clicking Hereby email to mtviewattendance@riversideunified.org or by calling (951) 788-7433 extension 44456.

Absence verifications should include the student’s name, date(s) of absence, reason for absence, and parent’s signature and daytime contact number. Whenever possible, please submit printed verification of doctor/dental visits to the attendance office via email or sent to school with your child. A doctor’s note may be requested by the principal or attendance personnel when a student has had more than 10 absences in the school year due to illness. Absences not cleared will remain unverified.

Student Illness

It is important to protect the health of all students from risk posed by infectious diseases that can be transmitted within the school setting. Your child may be excluded from school whenever there is a good reason to believe that the child is suffering from a recognized contagious or infectious disease, he or she shall be sent home and shall not be permitted to return until the school authorities are satisfied that any contagious or infectious disease does not exist.

Please do not send your child to school if they have any of the following signs or symptoms:

Fever (over 100.3 degrees). Please keep your child home until they have not had a fever for at least 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medication. If a student is sent home from school with a temperature greater than 100.3° F, the student MAY NOT return to school the next day. The student must be free from fever for 24 hours before returning.

Eyes that are red, swollen, crusting or draining. The student may return to school when the eyes are clear, or a doctor’s note states “non-contagious” or “under treatment.”

Head lice. Students with head lice may return to school after they have been treated with an appropriate lice shampoo and there is no evidence of live lice in their hair. A student returning to school after being excluded for head lice will be examined for live lice by the Health Assistant. Parents will be notified when nits (eggs) are present in the hair and the parent will be advised to treat the student and to remove the nits.

Vomiting/Diarrhea. If the student is ill and has vomited or had diarrhea, please do not send the student to school. The student must be free from vomiting/diarrhea for 24 hours before returning.

Skin rashes. A skin rash of unknown origin or a contagious rash requires a clearance from a health care provider that states the student is not contagious and may return to school. Otherwise, the student may return when the rash has cleared.

If a student is at school with any of the above, the parent will be called to pick the student up from school.
