    As the attendance clerk for Tortolita Middle School, I am responsible for documenting your child’s attendance, absences and tardies. 

    To report an absence/tardy please call our attendance hotline 579-4632. When leaving a message please include the students name, reason for absence, planned date of return, and a contact number. If an absence is to be considered “doctor excused” we must have a note from the doctor.  You may also email me.

    If you are requesting an early dismissal do not leave a message on the attendance hotline, it is only checked intermittently throughout the day.  Call the front office by dialing 579-4600 and pressing zero (0) to reach the front desk.

    It is our goal to have your child present as often as possible. There are 180 school days in the year. MUSD considers absences of higher than ten percent in a given school year to be excessive.

    We believe that a student’s academic (and social) success is often linked to their attendance. By encouraging your student to have a low percentage of absences you are helping them increase their potential for a life of success! 

    Many of your questions can be answered by using our “FAQ” section or the “How Do I” section on our main web page. If you cannot find the answers you need please call us at 579-4600.
