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.)

Unexcused Absences:

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.

Fill out the attached form if your student will miss 5 or more consecutive days of school.
