Attendance Hotline

Please call 760.331.6270 to report your child's absence.


Important Attendance Change

State law now requires schools to officially record every time a student is absent during instructional time. This means that if you sign your child out during the school day for a reason that is not “excused”, the absence will be recorded as “unexcused”.  Examples of excused reasons for leaving during the school day are illness or medical/dental appointments.  Examples of unexcused reasons for leaving during the school day are vacations, family days, personal, or if no reason is given.  If a student accrues a total of 3 unexcused absences, a truancy letter will be sent to the parents.

School Facts and Accountability Information

This provides links to a series of School Accountability Report Cards (SARC) about the state of our school, Pacific Rim Elementary, for the school years of 2004-2016. Under California law, as well as the No Child Left Behind Act, school districts must distribute a report card to show how every school and the district as a whole are performing. This report also must include data on how different groups of students are doing. The school reports tell you how your child’s school is doing compared to last year and to other schools.

For the most recent SARC, click here.

Boxtops is teaming up with the Green Team this year! In an effort to reduce waste, we will be collecting the boxtops in a repurposed box, decorated by our student Green Team. Look for the box in your child's classroom after Sep 21st. Now you simply drop your boxtops directly in the classroom box - no more glueing box tops on paper or baggies to worry about. At the end of the year we will tally boxtops and the winning class will get an ice cream party! For questions please contact Juliet Znovena at thesargeakajuliet@gmail.com.
