ESUHSD Attendance and Discipline Information
Attendance Policy and Procedures

Maintaining good attendance is essential for maximizing your academic achievement. It lays the foundation you need to do well in school and succeed later in life. Research shows that good attendance is one of the biggest indicators of student success ­ students who are at school more often simply do better!

When a student is absent, the student's parent MUST contact the attendance office daily via email or phone to report the absence.

Extended absences due to illness require that a parent contact the attendance office and provide a note from the student's physician.  

Please note, you must report the absence each day the student misses school.  Unreported absences will remain unexcused permanently if timely notification is not received.

  • Use the email address and/or phone numbers above to contact the correct Attendance staff

Whenever possible, medical or dental appointments should always be made after school.  If it is necessary to make an appointment during the school day, parents may call or provide the attendance office with a note signed by the parent for an Advance Admit Pass.  Leaving campus without school authorization will result in disciplinary action. Students found outside of school during school hours are subject to disciplinary action and/or citation by the San Jose Police Department. 

When a student is absent, Evergreen Valley High School will call the student's home indicating the student's absence.  

Parents can also register for Parent Connect from the Evergreen Valley High School website ( Once fully registered, parents can view daily attendance and review grading period marks. Parent Connect is a username and password system. To guarantee that only parents can view their student's attendance and grade information parents will be need to visit school before being issued their Parent Connect password.
