Attendance Policy

Regular school attendance is important to your child's progress. If your child is going to be absent, please call the office at 360-652-4515.

Returning From Absence: Your student will need a note that states the nature of the illness, the date, and parent's / guardian's signature. This note needs to be turned into the office so an admit slip can be issued.
 
BECCA Bill: The BECCA Bill (ESSB 5439) is a state mandate implemented in 1996 which requires school districts to file truancy petitions in juvenile court on students who have five unexcused absences in a month, or ten absences in a year. Phone calls will be made on a daily basis regarding student attendance.
Tardies: A student is tardy if he/she arrives anytime after 8:35 a.m.

Leaving Early: If you need to have your child leave early, please send a note indicating what time you will be picking up your child and check in at the office. Your child will be called from class and released to you from the office. Please do not go to the classroom to pick up your child.
