Attendance

Attendance is very important.
Please call the Browns Valley office if your child is absent. 453-6205, then press 2 for the absence recorder.  You will be asked to leave the student's name, teacher's name and the reason the student is not in school.  You may also email the attendance clerk at deannas@vacavilleusd.org and then leave the same information.  We encourage you to schedule appointments for students at the end of the day so they do not miss core instruction in the morning.

Students arriving late or leaving early require a doctor/dentist note for that part day absence to be medically excused.  A note can be submitted late for the code to be changed.

A medically excused tardy and Independent Study will not be counted towards truancy letters,

but will affect perfect attendance awards.

  • Stopping and waiting in the roadway in the roadway while blocking traffic flow creates delays and safety issues for everyone.
  • Please try to be aware of driveways, fire hydrants and small children; theyre easy to miss at times!
  • For more information about how you can help reduce your school's traffic congestion problems.

DRESS CODE/STUDENT APPEARANCE

Students are expected to arrive at school dressed in appropriate attire that is safe, respectful and does not detract from student learning. Parents will be called if their child arrives at school dressed inappropriately. Please help us observe the following:

  • No gum chewing is permitted on campus.
  • Shirts must only display appropriate language, symbols and pictures.
  • Halter Tops and tops with spaghetti straps are not acceptable attire.
  • All pants must be secured at the waist with no visible underwear.
  • Jewelry must be safe.
  • Footwear must be safe; flip- flops are unacceptable.
  • Hats, caps and bandanas may not be worn indoors.

                                                                                                                                                       

From our School Nurse

Please remember all medicines, including any over the counter meds, must not come to school without the appropriate district forms signed by the Dr. and the parent.  Forms can be picked up in the front office.

There are lots of bugs going around right now.  Policy is that students should not come to school until 24 hours after vomiting and after their fever breaks.  This helps to keep control of spreading the disease, as well as allowing time for your student to completely recover.

On another note, please don’t park in the nurses parking spot, even if you think I am not here.  That close up spot is not for convenience, it is for medical emergencies.  There are lots of students that are at risk and need attention every day at Browns Valley as well as at other schools.  There are only 4 full time nurses and 3 part time nurses to cover the entire district.  Nurses need to get in and out quickly to attend to these things.  Thank you in advance for your support in all of these matters.

Here is the Board Policy concerning casts, crutches etc. There is nothing about keeping the kids out of the playground.  We do encourage that they stay inside the office, but we won't demand it.

AR 5142 (e)

SAFETY (continued)

In addition, students returning to school after surgery, hospitalization, receiving a cast,

stitches, or orthopedic appliances require a doctor’s note which states the following:

1. The date the student is cleared to return to school.

2. Any restrictions to school participation

3. Date of follow-up appointment.
