THANK YOU to all the donors, volunteers, and our school partners for a successful Pledge Week! You
moved us from 47% to 54% of our $2,000,000 fundraising goal, and you unlocked the full $50,000
match from our anonymous donor match and both $2,500 flash matches. We still have 46% more to
raise to provide the staff and programs that your students rely on every day. If you haven’t donated yet,
please do so today - every dollar counts!

¡GRACIAS a todos los donantes, voluntarios y escuelas por una semana de compromiso exitosa! Nos
movió del 47 % al 54 % de nuestra meta de recaudación de fondos de $2,000,000, y desbloqueó la
coincidencia completa de $50,000 de nuestra donación anónima y ambas coincidencias flash de $2,500.
Todavía tenemos un 46 % más que recaudar para brindar el personal y los programas en los que sus
estudiantes confían todos los días. Si aún no ha donado, hágalo hoy: ¡cada dólar cuenta!

Attendance & what to do if your child is absent or leaving early:

All absences and tardies must be excused by parents or guardians. Parents should report absences via the JAMS website (click on "Find It Fast" and then "Report an Absence"; or click here) or by leaving a phone message at 310-452-2326 x72201. Phone messages should include your child's name, ID number or birthdate, date of absences and a detailed reason for the absence. 

Please let us know first thing in the morning if your child will be leaving school early. You may send your child with a note (to bring to the office before the start of school), fill out the online "Report an Absence" form or leave a detailed phone message at 310-452-2326 x72201. The note/message should contain your child's name, the time they will be leaving, the reason for leaving early and a phone number where you can be reached for verification. If advance notice is not given, please be patient with us as we locate your child and bring them to the office. This is especially important during lunch and nutrition when students are spread out all over campus.

Absences that are not cleared within 72 hours will be recorded as truant. For more information on attendance policies, please visit the JAMS website or refer to SMMUSD's Attendance FAQ page.
