Illness Absences During the COVID Pandemic

Due to COVID related protocols given to us by the District, all absences must be reported to the front office. It is critical that we hear from you the reason your student is staying home from school. If you do not report the reason for the absence, your student will not be allowed to return to class. Please be sure to communicate directly to our office instead of to the teacher. We need to know the specifics, please!  To report your student’s absence: 

  • Call 619-605-3200 any time of the day and press “1” at the menu to get the attendance desk. If you leave a voicemail be clear with the student name, teacher name and specifics about why they are absent. Please also leave your name and phone number so that our health office can follow up if needed; OR
  • Use our online Google Doc and report the absence digitally. The link can always be found at the bottom of every Hancock Happenings or prominently on our website look for the “Report Absence” button. Link to Absence Report Google Doc

After an illness related absence, the guidelines for your student to return are as follows: 

  • Improvement in symptoms
  • 24 hours fever free without the help of fever reducing medication
  • Negative PCR test (please note: rapid/antigen tests are not accepted) - - please upload the test results to this Google Form or bring to the school front office before sending your student back to school. Students must get a green “cleared” pass from the front office before they can return to class.
