Students are expected to attend all assigned classes each day. It is important that you call the office whenever your student will be absent from school.
Washington State Law requires that students must attend school Monday through Friday, unless there is a good reason for being absent. An absence from school, even if the work is made up, is not advisable, unless absolutely necessary, as classroom instruction, collaborative work and labs may not be possible to repeat. It is the student's responsibility to discuss with their teacher(s) for arrangements on how to make up all missed assignments, including group work and labs.
All absences must be excused by parent(s)/guardian(s) within 48 hours (State Law RCW 28A225). Parent(s)/Guardian(s) Please call 425-408-6810 (24 HR. Attendance Line) or send a signed note to the Attendance Office.
Provide your student's first, last name, student ID#, date, and reason for the absence. Do not excuse absences through e-mail, to assure absences are recorded and promplty excused on the same school day as reported.
Making up class work: When a student is absent, it is important to refer to their teacher’s course syllabi and academic plan for assignment make-up policies and procedures. Students may also check online through StudentVue for daily class assignments, due dates, and uploaded resources.
Attending school on time, all day, every day will give your child the best chance of succeeding in middle school and eventually graduating from high school.
