Out of Area Variance Procedures: While
moving is sometimes unavoidable, parents should try to keep their child
enrolled at the same school whenever possible. Students who move out of
the Montebello School attendance area may apply for a variance by
coming to the office and completing an out of area variance request
form. If approved, the child(ren) will be allowed to continue at
Montebello School as a student. The Alhambra School District will
accommodate as many attendance variance requests as possible from both
inside and outside the District attendance area. Please contact the
principal if you wish to request an attendance variance for your
child. The principal of the school will be happy to discuss the request
with you. Granting of variances is a site-based decision by the school
principal. The decision to grant a variance is based on enrollment for
the grade level of each school. An approved variance is only good for
the current school year. A variance must be renewed each school year.
