Sunset High School has a strict attendance policy. Students are expected to attend class every day.  Class begins at 8:30am, and students are expected to be on time. If a student is absent, the parent should call the school, 760-753-3860,  ext. 5603, and leave a message on the Attendance Line. 
Please leave the parent's name, phone number, the student's name, and the reason for the absence, including the date.   If a student is tardy, for any reason, the lost time must be made up on the same day the tardy has occurred.  School hours for students are 8:30am to 12:45pm.  A refreshment break is offered between 10:25 and 10:47am.
Please note that all absences not cleared by a parent or guardian within a week of the missed day will result in a truancy.
