Parents should contact the teacher directly by calling the main school telephone number and dialing the teacher's ext., (room #) or via email. Teacher's email address can be found on the main web page of the school.
I HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED THAT MY STUDENT IS OFFICIALLY TRUANT. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN AND WHO SHOULD I SPEAK TO REGARDING THIS?
Parents are notified when students have missed the equivalent of three days unexcused absences. This is done via the mail system to ensure that parents are aware of the situation. San Benito High School does this to meet state requirements and to assist busy parents in keeping track of their student's attendence in school.
