Regular attendance is vital to the quality of a child’s education. Parents are the key in establishing and maintaining punctual, regular attendance habits. Each school has specific attendance policies listed in student handbooks; parents are encouraged to review these policies with their students.
If a child is kept home due to illness, the child’s school should be notified as soon as possible. Please call Susan Coley at (360) 874-6096. If she is unavailable, please leave her a message or send a note with your student when they return which needs to be turned in to the attendance office.
Physicians advise that a child be fever-free 24 hours before resuming normal activity. Parents/guardians must provide a written explanation/excuse for a student to take to school the day he/she returns from an absence. Parents may request that their child’s teacher(s) provide makeup assignments to prevent the child from falling behind the rest of the class. This can be done by calling Sharon Rice at (360) 874-6098. If she is unavailable, please leave a message. Homework requests can take up to 48 hours to be completed.
As a safety precaution, students are not allowed to leave the school campus during school hours without clearance from Mrs. Coley in the attendance office or other administrative official.
