About Attendance



It is expected that Lowell students will attend school regularly.  It has been our experience that more than five days of absence for any reason in an eighteen-week semester results in poor grades.

                  Re-Admit slip:
                      If a student is absent, the parent or guardian should call the Attendance Office at 415-759-2730 ext. 3131, stating student's name and registry number.  When the student returns to school, he/she must bring a note signed by the parent or guardian to room 131-Attendance Office.  A re-admit slip in no longer required.  With the note, the absence will be excused within 3 days.  If there is a problem with the note, a correction notice will be sent to the student.

                  Permit-To-Leave Slip (PTL for App’t) – if a student needs to leave early/during the day due to a DR./DDS appointment/other (not illness), s/he needs to bring a signed parent note to the Attendance Office or to Ms. Schmidt according to the times listed in the Re-admit section.  Students must have the PTL signed by the parent/guardian and returned the following morning.

                  Permit-To-Leave Slip (PTL for Illness) – if a student becomes ill during the day, s/he should go to RM. 129 (Nurse Rainey), RM. 104 (Ms. Schmidt), or the Dean’s Office in Rm. 127 (Dean Cordoba) any time during the day.  The parent/guardian will be notified and a PTL will be issued to the student.  The student must have the parent sign the

PTL, attach a note regarding the illness, and return the PTL for a Re-admit slip as per the Re-admit section.

                  Tardy to School/Cutting Classes:  Any loss of school time as the same effect- a loss of educational opportunity.  The dean will assign penalties.

Thank you for your cooperation!
