Truancy Letters

Truancy letters are sent out from the Long Beach Unified School District on a monthly basis.  Truancy letters are triggered by as few as three unverified period absences.  Students and parents should check School Loop frequently.  Absences marked by mistake should be reported to the teacher right away so errors can be corrected.   All absences should be cleared within 5 days.  Parents, if you receive a truancy letter, print out your student's attendance in School Loop, sign and date for the excused absences, include the reason for the absence and have your student take the signed print out to the Attendance Office for clearance of those absences.

Early-outs 

Students are encouraged to schedule appointments outside of the school day.  In order to leave school during the day students must bring a note to the Attendance Office before school or during nutrition.  Notes must include: Student name, date, reason for leaving early, parent/guardian signature, and a phone number. 

If there isn't a note and an Early-out is needed, a parent or guardian must come into the Attendance Office to pick up the student.  Please allow approximately 20 minutes to process the request and pull the student from class.  Be sure to bring identification to campus for admittance. 

If your student is leaving early due to sickness, please sign him or her out from the Nurse's Office.

Arriving late to school

Wilson High School students are expected to be in class on time. If you are late to class, the consequences for being tardy is a 30-minute detention.

If you arrive later than forty minutes (block schedule) because of a doctor/dentist/court appointment, show your note (on letterhead stationery - parent notes are not accepted) at the front door and proceed to the Attendance Office for a tardy slip.  If you do not have a note from your doctor or dentist and it is past 40-minutes, you must wait at one of the entrances for the next block to begin.
