A written excuse or a call (925) 687-0202 is required, which includes the specific reason, the date(s), and the signature of parent(s) or guardian when a student is absent for any reason. You can also email with this information. When students return to Sunrise Elementary School, they must bring the absence verification note directly to their teacher. Habitual absence and/or tardies will be classified as truant. Appropriate district office authorities will be notified. The goal, of course, is for every child to be successful and to attend school regularly.

If your student is absent from school, please report your student's absence and the reason for the absence each day. Absences must be cleared within 72 hours or they will be considered unexcused.
You can report the absence in any of the following ways:

Thank you.
