    Burbank Unified School District urges parents/guardians/caregivers to make sure their students attend school regularly and on time to remain compliant with state and county laws.   Families can help their students in the following ways:

    • Encourage your student to attend class regularly and promptly
    • Review your student’s attendance and tardy information in Aeries
    • Schedule medical and other appointments after school and on holidays
    • Avoid scheduling vacations and travel while school is in session

    Absences from school may be excused or unexcused.  Absences are typically excused for the following reasons:

    • Medical, dental, orthodontic, or optometry appointment
    • Mental health
    • Court appointment
    • College or employment appointment
    • DMV appointment
    • Religious holiday, ceremony, instruction, or retreat

    For a comprehensive list of excused absences, please see the Burbank Unified School District’s Annual Notification to Parents:  https://www.burbankusd.org/Page/1332

    For an excused absence, a parent/guardian/caregiver must notify the JBHS attendance desk within three (3) days if a student misses school due to absence.
