Channel Islands High School expects all students to be in their assigned classroom with all necessary materials before the tardy bell rings. Good attendance is a shared responsibility between the student and parent. We expect parents to send their children to school each day on time and to report any absence within 3 school days. We expect students to arrive at each class on time, to stay at school and to discuss attendance issues with their parents. It is important that students attend class regularly and on time, except in cases of illness or emergency. Student attendance has a direct correlation with academic performance. Excessive absences or tardies in a class and failure to complete makeup work may result in a grade of “Fail” for that class.
The state of California enforces a Compulsory Education Law (EC48200). Students are expected to attend school regularly until age 18 unless they:
Graduate from High School
Pass the California High School Proficiency Exam.
Obtain (at age 16-17) written parental permission to withdraw due to full-time employment with continuing education in Adult School.
When a student arrives late to school, a parent or guardian must accompany the student to the office or send with a note and obtain a tardy slip. Note forms are available in the Resources section below for your convenience.
For early release, please make sure to follow off campus pass procedures. If a student leaves without an off-campus pass, attendance cannot be excused due to closed campus policy.
OFF CAMPUS PROCEDURES
Off-campus Requests cannot be submitted after 2:45PM
AVOID VIOLATING OUHSD CLOSED CAMPUS POLICY
If parents need to pick up their student, please check them out through the front office and obtain a PINK off-campus pass.
I.D. VERIFICATION IS REQUIRED
Note that summoning a student to the office may take on average about 15 minutes. (avoid wait times by sending your student with a written request!)
Written requests may be submitted for an off-campus pass. The STUDENT is responsible to pick up pass from the office BEFORE they leave.
Submit note at Office Window before school begins
Pass pick-up is during Nutrition or Lunch
If returning to school, bring the PINK off-campus pass back to the office and obtain a readmit slip
Feeling ill during school
If your student is feeling ill during class, they must obtain a written pass from the teacher to report to the health office.
The Oxnard Union High School District has adopted a closed campus policy for each of the high schools. Once students arrive at school, they must remain on campus until the end of the school day, unless they have brought written authorization from their parents/guardians and received permission from school authorities to leave for a specific purpose. Students who leave campus without such authorization shall be classified as truant.
