There are two options to reporting your child's absence.

1) You may email



2) call (408) 423-1605 to report that your child is going to be absent.  This is a 24 hour voicemail line.  


When reporting your child's absence (via email or phone) please include the following:

*your child's full name

*your child's room number

*reason for their absence. 

Attendance Reminders

School starts promptly AT 8:15 AM.  Please plan on being here before 8:10 AM.  Students may be dropped off starting at 7:55 AM.

If your child has a morning appointment (which we know you are trying to avoid) please be sure to bring a note from the doctor/dental office, so that your child's 'tardy' is excused.

Thank you!

Traffic Message from Officer Tracy

Dear Appleseed Montessori, Laurelwood Elementary, and Silicon Valley Academy Parents,

My name is Officer J. Tracy, and I am a police officer for the City of Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety.  I am writing this very important letter because of the concern that I, the residents whom live in the area, the school administrations, and school parents, have about traffic violations, and unsafe driving in the residential zones around the school campuses.  There have been numerous reports of parents speeding and not making full stops at clearly posted stop signs.  

Please help us to be good neighbors by being courteous drivers and by obeying the law. Especially be alert
to pedestrians and bicyclists. There are many children and families using the crosswalks at Teal Drive and Dunford Way, in front of the school and near the park.

Please slow down! The speed limit on Dunford Way is 25 mph.  Come to a complete stop at the stop signs and yield the right-of-way to pedestrians entering crosswalks.  Remember, children do not always know the rules of the road.  Be especially vigilant when you observe children walking and riding bikes.

In order to keep the areas around our schools safe, the Sunnyvale Police department will be aggressively monitoring streets and intersections around the schools, and will be issuing citations.  There will be zero tolerance for traffic law violations!

Thank you for keeping our neighborhood safe.
