To maximize your child’s learning, it is important for your child to be at school, on time, all day.
ABSENCES: Washington State has a compulsory school attendance law (RCW 22A.225.010). If your child is absent from school for any reason, please do the following:
Call the school attendance line by 9:00 a.m. at 360.279.5148 or our main office at 360.279.5100 to notify office personnel of the absence.
Send a dated and signed note with your child within 48 hours of returning to school, explaining the reason for the absence and the date(s) of the absence or you may also e-mail an attendance note to email@example.com.
Contact the classroom teacher and ask for any missed work.
If you anticipate a lengthy absence for a medical reason, please provide the school with a note from your doctor.
Please schedule family vacations during regular school vacations so your child does not miss school.
EXCESSIVE ABSENCES: If your child has 3 or more unexcused absences in a month, you will receive a letter from the school requesting a meeting or phone conference with our Dean of Students.
Please note: If your child has had a fever, vomited, or has had diarrhea within the past 24 hours, they MAY NOT come to school.
PREARRANGED EXTENDED ABSENCES: If your child will be absent for more than 3 consecutive days, other than for illness, an Absence Contract Agreement must be completed and returned to the office. The classroom teacher should be notified at least 48 hours in advance. Per Policy No. 3122 item #12, the principal must agree to the absence. An absence may not be approved if it causes a serious adverse effect on the student’s educational progress.
TARDINESS: Students are expected to be in class and ready to learn promptly at 9:00 a.m. Our warning bell rings at 8:50. Students who are late (tardy) must be ESCORTED TO THE OFFICE BY AN ADULT and signed in. If your child is tardy 4 or more times in a month, you will receive a letter from the Dean requesting a meeting/phone call to resolve the problem.
