San José Unified welcomes all students, regardless of their immigration status. However, many of our students and families are experiencing anxiety and uncertainty as a result of some of the proposed policy changes at the federal level. For more information press HERE.
“When students arrive to school in the morning they become our responsibility. Please remind your child they are not to walk off campus. We have healthy and tasty breakfast choices and a safe, supervised campus. Thank you for your support. “
“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 of being in class, and on time, so that your child can get the most out of the learning activities.”
