Our School » Attendance


Student attendance and student achievement are closely intertwined. Students who develop patterns of good attendance are much more likely to be successful both academically and socially than students who develop patterns of poor attendance. Poor attendance at all grade levels, including kindergarten, directly impedes academic performance.
At Camellia Ave Elementary School, the school gates open at 7:15am. Classes begin at 7:45am. Any child arriving after 7:45am is considered late and will be marked tardy. If your child needs to leave school early, please pick him/her up at the Main Office.  If your child is tardy, absent or leaving early, you must provide a valid excuse. Uncleared early leaves and absences and absences for which a valid excuse was not provided will be counted as a truancy. District policy requires that any tardy, absence, and early leave be cleared within ten school days.
If you have any questions about attendance, please feel free to contact the main office 818-765-5255.

A perfect attendance trophy is awarded each month to the class that has the highest attendance in their grade level. In addition every student with perfect attendance participate in a variety of activities.
