Please see below for FAQ and information.

I dropped off my child at school. Why are they marked absent? Students are expected to be in their classroom seats by 8:05am. If your student arrived after the late bell it is best to send them to the office for a late pass to avoid confusion.

I called to report the absence already, why am I receiving a notification they are absent?Attendance is not cleared immediately after notifying. As morning tardies, calls, voicemails and emails are handled in the order received it may take about 24 hours for a reported absence to be cleared, so we gratefully thank you for your patience. 

Excused Absences
Once a student reaches 10 days of excused absences, we require that all subsequent absences be verified by a physician, school nurse, or other school personnel. (California Education Code 46011). Verification of absences must be provided within 20 days of the absence.

Doctors Note
Doctors or dentist notes/letters can be submitted in person to Andrea or via email to lynhaven_attendance [at]

For all doctor or dentist appointments a note is required to excuse the absence.

**Failure to notify absences are automatically counted as unexcused.

**For information regarding COVID-19 Resources please click here.

All absence can be reported via:

Attendance Phone: (this is a voicemail only line)(408) 341-7041 
Attendance Email: lynhaven_attendance [at]
Parent Square: Once notification goes out you may reply with a note.

When calling please clearly state your child's full name, date, relationship, reason for absence and symptoms if calling in sick. 

We thank you for your partnership! As we tell all our students, remember to 
Act Responsibly, Behave Respectfully & Care for all!
