2022-2023 Attendance Policy and Procedures



Millikan High School


Our goal is to provide Millikan High School students with a sound academic foundation that will prepare them for success in their post-secondary years. Regular and punctual attendance is essential for this to occur. Students are expected to have good attendance and to be in class on time unless they have a valid excuse. Parents are encouraged to monitor their child’s attendance on ParentVUE.


Notifying the school of your student's absence should be reported to the school as soon as they are absent. Clearing your student's absences can be conducted in one of the following ways and should be submitted within five days of their absence. Delays in this process can create unverified and unexcused absences, resulting in truancy notifications.  

  1. Submit an "Absence Clearance Google Form. This form is on our main web page or below under "Click here to Clear an Absence A-L or M-Z.
  2. Call the School's Attendance Office at 562-425-7441 ext 4545 or ext 4112.
  3. Send a student with a note to the attendance office upon their return.

Early Outs: Requesting your student early from school due to an upcoming appointment can be requested by completing a Google Form "Early Out Request" on our main web page. This Google Form is available daily after 4:00 pm through 8:00 am the next day. Once our Attendance Office has verified the Early Out, students must pick up their early out from the Attendance Office during Nutrition or Lunch only. A student may use their Early Out to exit class and school at the designated time listed on the Early Out. All Early Outs due to any medical or dentistry appointment must be accompanied by an official note for proper attendance clearance upon the student's return to school.

Steps for Clearing Questionable Absences 

  1. Go to ParentVue to find dates/periods of absences

  2. Discuss any questionable absences with your student

  3. Have your student speak/email their teacher about any questionable absences

    • If the teacher agrees that there was an error, the teacher will submit a correction form to the attendance office. This will allow the attendance clerks to remove the error.

    • If the teacher does not agree, the absence will remain.

  4. After completing steps 1-3, if there are still discrepancies, contact the attendance office.
