    What should I do if my student is absent?

    If your student is going to be absent please notify us the same day by 
    by calling the attendance line at 360.279.5503.
    You may also send your student with a note within 48 hours upon their return.
     If you have a pre-planned event where your student will be out of school for 2 or more days, please send us a note 3 days ahead of the absence. We then will give your student a contract to take around to their teachers and obtain homework.  In the event that an illness causes an extended absence, we may also be able to gather assignments that were missed, but please note that it may take teachers 24-48 hours to have assignments ready for pick-up.
    Excuse notes must include:
    • Student's full name
    • The date/s and reason for the absence/s
    • A parent/guardian signature and the current date
    An excused absence may consist of:
    • Absences relating to deployment or military functions
    • Participation in a school-approved activity
    • Absence due to illness, health condition, or family emergency
    • Absence resulting from disciplinary actions or short-term suspension
    • Extended illness or health condition, Dr.'s note may be needed
    • Absence for a chronic health condition, Dr.'s note may be needed
    • Absence relating to post highschool planning, for example, college campus visit
    • Absences relating to COVID-19

    Homework during an absence
    You may request homework for your student via family access.  If you do not know your family access log in or password please contact the registrar at 360.279.5519.  Homework may be requested formally after your child has been absent for two consecutive days.  When requesting homework, call the attendance line 360.279.5503 and indicate that your student has been out for two days and you would like to request homework.  This has to be done before 10 AM to allow teachers time to gather work together.  Work will be sent to the office for parent pick up.   The office closes at 3 p.m.
    Most teachers post work on their websites.  Missing assignments are posted in the grade book section of family access.
