To report an absence, please call the Attendance Message Center at 408-267-7309.  This is a 24 hour message center, so you may call it at any time.  Messages are checked several times each day.  All absences must be verified within 5 days.

Important - School Attendance

The regular and punctual attendance of students is expected and enforced. Education code states that any student who is absent from school without valid excuse three full days in one school year or tardy or absent for more than any 30-minute period during the school day without a valid excuse on three occasions in one school year or any combination thereof, is a truant. Please continue to drive home the importance being in class, on time so your child can get the most out of their learning activities.


The School English Learner Advisory Committee, or SELAC, is meeting on Thursday September 29th at 10:00 a.m. in the John Muir Middle School library. The SELAC is responsible for advising and assisting the school’s programs and services for English Learners. The SELAC is an excellent opportunity to come together to get to know other families and school staff, learn about the school’s services, and offer recommendations to the school regarding English Learner services.


The District English Learners Advisory Committee, or DELAC, meets regularly to advise the District governing board regarding District goals and objectives, and to assist in developing a district-wide plan for English Learners Education. Each school’s SELAC elects one of its members to serve on the DELAC. We are looking for a parent to be the representative of John Muir Middle School on the DELAC. If you are interested in representing John Muir Middle School on the DELAC please contact Dr. Heffernan. Additional information may be found at:
