Your student’s daily attendance and active participation are critical for the learning process. The following attendance policies support your student to learn responsibility and increase their potential for success in school.
Students are expected to attend all scheduled classes each day. It is important to inform the Attendance Office whenever your student will be absent from school. Parents/guardians must notify the Attendance Office to excuse absences (within 72 hours per WA State Law.)
Notify the Attendance Office if your student is absent as promptly as possible, preferably in the morning on the same school day, yet within 3 days, per Washington State Law. Please see additional procedures below for late arrival, early dismissal or pre-arranging long-term absences and provide:
· name of person excusing the absence
· student's first and last name (legal name)
· student ID#
· date(s) and class period(s) of absence
· valid reason for the absence
· If your student is experiencing a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher, cough or loss of smell or taste, identify any of these 3 symptoms in your voicemail or email message.

It is important to excuse your student’s absences from class periods as soon as possible, preferably on the same school day - within 72 hours (per WA State Law).
If your student has unexcused absences or excessive cumulative absences from school, parents/guardians may be contacted from the Attendance Office requesting a meeting with our school’s administration and/or school counselors to address barriers that may be causing your students to miss school.
