Pinnacle Peak Preparatory Attendance Policy

Pinnacle Peak Preparatory School Attendance Line: (602) 449-6701.

Failure to report a child’s absence will constitute an unexcused absence or truancy. It is for your child’s protection that this policy is in place and we appreciate parental cooperation and support. It is a matter of Governing Board Policy that a student may be retained for excessive absences that affect his/her academic progress.

What If My Child Is Home Ill?

If your child is ill be sure to call our 24-hour attendance line at (602) 449-6701 by 8:45 a.m. the morning of the absence.

The State Department of Education tracks many health problems, so it is important to state specifically why your child is absent. Please indicate the nature of the absence. Illness reasons are list below:

  • Head Lice

  • Pink Eye

  • Chicken Pox

  • Gastro-Intestinal (Stomach upset, flu, diarrhea)

  • Upper Respiratory (Cold, sore throat, bronchitis, congestion, strep throat, etc.)

  • Excused Absence (Symptoms that are not contagious: headache, vacation, personal)

It is mandatory that all absences are called in by a parent or guardian. The student or an older sibling may not excuse the absence. If your child is absent and we do not hear from the parent, we will try to contact you by phone. If we are not successful, the student will be marked truant. If you need to contact the school nurse, please feel free to call her directly at (602) 449-6703.

When can my child return to school?

Please remember it is district policy that your child be fever free (no fever without the aid of Tylenol or Ibuprofen) and vomit free for 24 hours prior to returning to school. This district policy protects all students from illness. That you for your help.


The school bell rings at 8:10 a.m. and classes begin at 8:15 a.m.. Instruction commences after morning announcements. It is less disruptive to the class if everyone is present when the teachers begin direction for the day. A student is tardy if they are not in their classroom at 8:15 a.m.
