Forest Hill Elementary School

School Attendance

If you will be going on vacation, try to plan them on school holidays. If you not able to, and will be gone 2 days or longer, please come into the office and inquire about an Independent Study Agreement.

Please notify the office every day that your child is absent from school.  To report an absence, call 408-341-7132 for the 24 hr. attendance line.

If you have seen a medical professional, please bring us a doctor's note to have your child's absence medically verified.

Your student is allowed 10 days of parent verified absence due to an illness for the school year. After the 10 days, you will need to bring in a doctor's note to clear the absences. 

Vacations are not excused absences. Vacation and absences other than illness are considered unexcused and will generate truancy letters.
