Daily attendance in each class is required. Students are responsible for any work missed due to their absence. Assignments or lessons missed must be made up in order to obtain course credit.
Students absent for five UNEXCUSED days, or for fifteen days for any reason, are ordinarily ineligible for semester credit.
Any student participating in an extra-curricular event (athletic games, drama plays, clubs, etc.) must be in school for one-half of all classes in order to participate in that event that day. Non-attendance on a Friday forfeits participation in weekend school-related activities.
Students with perfect attendance are recognized at the end of the school year. Perfect attendance means students are never late or absent from a class (except for a school activity).
Students are expected to be in their assigned seat in the their first period classroom when the bell to start the day rings. Any student who does not meet this expectation is considered tardy. Students tardy to school or to any class during the day must obtain an admit slip from the attendance office.
Notes from parents/guardians regarding tardiness on any given day will clear the tardy for that quarter, however the student will be required to serve detention on that day.
For the 2nd – 5th tardies per quarter, after school detention for each tardy will be assigned (2:55 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.).
Failure to attend a given detention without being excused by the Dean of Students will be viewed as defiance, which will result in further disciplinary action up to and including and in-school suspension.
If a student is tardy more than five times in a quarter, a meeting between the student’s parents/guardians and the Dean of Students will be held to figure out how to get the student to school on time.
The Registrar is the designated person running day to day detentions. The Registrar will report to the Dean of Students all students who fail to attend a detention. The Dean oversees the day-to-day consequences for tardiness and any disciplinary actions.
The Finance Department works with the President and the Board of Directors in managing the long-term financial stability of the School. Our staff is committed to supporting the achievement of the School's goals and is fully aligned with its strategic and academic priorities.

Salesian College Preparatory has established a Family Service Program (FSP) as a way for families to be involved with school events by volunteering their time. Without family support, many of the school’s events would not be possible. Families are required to register (see below links) to volunteer for school events by the 1st day of school in August. All financial assistance from Salesian (including scholarships) will be put on hold until your FSP registration is complete.
Families who register (sign-up) for an event but fail to work at that event, will be immediately re-assigned. An invoice will be issued to families who fail to work at any FSP events. There is an “Opt Out of FSP” fee option for families to decline to participate in FSP and agree to pay $500 by September 15th instead.
FSP service opportunities include working at activities such as:
Athletic Events: Booster Club – Fall, Winter and Spring sporting events, parking attendant, gate and concession selling and BBQ grilling (Snack Shack), CYO track meets, football-player dinners, etc.
School Events: Dances; class retreats and family dinners; Homecoming events; drama productions; Project Santa; band concerts; work at the Crab Feed; drivers for Service Day; work at the Golf Tournament and dinner; work at the Mother’s Day Mass and Brunch; Senior reception and events, etc.
FSP requirements for each family (not per student) are the following three steps:
1) Step 1 or "FSP S1": Work at one LARGE event all day or evening(i.e., Project Santa, CYO Track Meet Crew, Two Football Player Dinners, Service Day Driver)
2) Step 2 or "FSP S2": Work at least one other event or activity (i.e., Mothers Day Brunch Crew, Dances, Crab Feed, Drama Production, Snack Shack)
3) Step 3: Attend ONE grade level evening meeting per year. (You do not register for these meetings on-line. You sign in/out at the meeting to receive credit.)

All student athletes must have a physical examination performed within twelve (12) months prior to participation in any sport at Salesian College Preparatory. This physical examination must be documented on a Salesian health form available in the Salesian main office, or available by clicking the link below, and then submitted to the Attendance Clerk in the main office.
The best time to obtain a physical examination is during the summer months so that the student-athlete is allowed to participate in sports beginning in the fall of the upcoming school year.
For questions about obtaining a pre-participation physical examination, please contact Athletics Director Chad Nightingale at (510) 234-3344 ext. 1015 or email@example.com.
