TO REPORT YOUR STUDENT'S ABSENCE:
To inform us of your child's absence, you can:
- Leave a voicemail on the Attendance Hotline (360) 396-3100 - option 2
- Contact the Attendance Secretary directly using the provided desk number
- Parents/guardians may also send an email to the Attendance Secretary
It's crucial to report absences within a 48-hour period. Regular attendance is vital to your child's academic progression, starting from kindergarten. As they progress to middle and high school, continuous absence becomes a major contributor to student dropout. Both excused and unexcused absences can rapidly accumulate, causing substantial loss of classroom time.
