Clearing Absences

Ways to Clear A Student's Absence

Have your student bring the note to the Attendance Office - in the Admin Building, first open door on the right, next to the counselors offices. Ask for our Attendance Specialist.

  1. BEST WAY: Write a note with:
    • your student's first and last names,
    • the date(s) they were absent,
    • the reason they were absent,
    • sign your name (parent/guardian) and date the note.

  2. Call Skyline at (510) 879-2306.

    Ask to speak to an Attendance Specialist. If there is no answer, please leave a message.
  3. Email our Attendance Specialist

    Joanna Calderon and Nancy Phan

Information to include in your note, email or message:

  • your student's first and last names
  • the date(s) they were absent 
  • the reason they were absent
  • parent/guardian contact info 

Note that not all reasons will clear an absence.  

When Will The Absence Be Cleared

You can check Aeries to see if your student's absence has cleared. Please allow up to 3 days for an absence to be cleared after you have contacted the Attendance Office. Please note that the following activities will be cleared by your student's teacher, coach or administrator and may require a greater length of time to be cleared:

  • Sports
  • Field Trips
  • Testing
  • Assemblies

If an absence from one of these activities hasn't been cleared within one week, please contact the attendance specialists.
