Online Absence Verification Form - rev. 05.16.24

Regular Attendance Is Essential For Learning

Regular attendance is critical to your child's education. Disruptions to your child's school attendance can have a significant impact on his or her academic performance. Your child should attend school consistently and should be absent only for illness or emergencies. Please do not schedule extended family vacations during school time.
If an absence is unavoidable please complete the form below. Required fields are marked with an (*).  You may be contacted by the school office for updates or additional information.
Already submitted documentation for this absence (note, email, submission through online form)? 
Please allow up to 5 business days for this to be reflected in Aeries before resubmitting.  Off Grounds slips and notes received on the date of the absence may not be processed before the end of the school day and may result in a notification, if your student has already submitted documentation, please allow a few days for this to be entered.  You can check in Aeries for status.
Absence/Tardy entered in error?
If your student feels that their absence or tardy was entered in error, please have them speak to the teacher as soon as possible.  Teachers are able to correct these within 3 days of occurance.  After 3 school days, the student will need to pick up an Absence Clearance Form from the Attendance office to have their teacher sign.  Attendance cannot clear these without teacher sign-off.

Please consider donating $64 per day for each student absence. This is the average amount MBUSD loses in school funding for every absence reported. We are currently projected to lose approximately $2.7M due to absences.

Please click here to make your absence donation through our Square payment portal. 

EXAMPLE: For a family with two children who will be absent for 2-days each, the suggested donation is $256 (2 students x 2 days x $64/day).
