Attendance Line

Attendance Information

If your child is absent, please call Glorietta's 24-hour attendance reporting line so that our office staff can keep up-to-date records of student absences on a daily basis.  
The 24-hour attendance reporting phone number is: tel:925-258-6385.
Please leave the following information:

  • Your child’s name, please spell the last name
  • Estimated length of absence
  • If you are uncertain regarding the number of days your child will be out please call the attendance line on a daily basis
  • Your name and your relationship to the student

Please use the direct attendance line to report your child’s absence.  Please do not just send an email to the classroom teacher or call the office main phone number. It is imperative that all absences are reported on the attendance line.


Parents are reminded of the financial impact that daily attendance has on the Orinda Union School District's budget.  The district loses $27.60 per day for a single student absence.  If every Glorietta student missed just one day per year, the district would lose $11,785.   The average student district wide misses five days during the school year which equals $343,620 in lost revenue annually due to absences.  As you can see, attendance is an important financial consideration so please do your best to keep students in school; thank you!


If you know in advance that your child will need to miss more than 3 consecutive days of school, please let your child's teacher and the office know at least a week before the absences to set up an Independent Study (IS) plan.
