District-Wide Attendance Communications

This is a friendly reminder that we are still piloting the use of Attendance Nudge letters for our Kinder-8th grade students as a strategy to reduce absences. Our mailing arrived in families' mailboxes on Monday, Apr. 15th

SFUSD is providing updates about both excused and unexcused absences, so families are aware of all the days your child is missing school. The district is doing this proactively, before students are chronically absent. Please know that the nudge letter is unique from a truancy letter.

What should I do with the information about my child’s attendance?

  • If your child has few absences and the attendance records are correct, keep up the good work!
  • If your child’s attendance record is incorrect, contact the school office via email or a written note at any time throughout the year.
  • If your child’s absences are related to an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or 504 Plan, contact your child’s case manager to work together to find solutions.

If you are struggling to get your child to school for any other reasons, we want to hear from you. Call or visit the school site or call the SFUSD Family Link Line 415-340-1716.
