Regular and punctual attendance is extremely important to your child’s success in school. We encourage you to help your child develop these good habits. Attendance is directly associated with grades earned. However, when absences or late arrivals are necessary, please do the following:
1. Call us before 8:30 am to let us know. A short message giving the student’s name, teacher, and who is calling is all that is necessary. You may also leave a message on the office voicemail at 425.204.2960 during the evening.
2. Send a note within 48 hours explaining the reason for the absence or late arrival upon the child’s return, include the dates involved.
3. If you want homework for your child, please mention that fact when you call and then arrange to pick it up after school, or have it brought home with another child. This gives the teacher time to get everything ready.
If we do not receive a morning call, you will receive an automated message. This verification call is for your child’s protection, as well as required by the Becca Bill. We will appreciate your efforts to keep us informed.
