Attendance is Important!

Attendance Reminders:

  • This school year, attendance is taken twice a day, during the first 30 minutes of the school day and during the last 30 minutes of the school day.
  • If your student arrives to school between 7:50-8:15am, they will be marked tardy.
  • If your student arrives to school after 8:15am, this will be marked as an AM absence. We will need a reason, like a note from a medical appointment, to mark it as an excused absence.
  • If your student leaves school before 1:45pm, this will be marked as a PM absence.
  • Please make sure that your student comes to the office if they arrive late. Once teachers take attendance, the office must change their absence in skyward. If the student goes straight to class, this causes lots of confusion.
  • If you are planning military block leave or another leave that will require your child to be out of school, please call the main office at 253-583-5220. For these absences to be excused, they must be pre-approved and the proper paper work must be submitted.
  • We may still be required (by Washington State law) to meet with you and set up a plan, even if your child’s absences are excused or if they are within the tardy window. All absences ‘count’. See the attendance handbook that was handed out in September for more details.
  • As always, if you have questions about your child’s attendance, please call 253-583-5220.
