Attendance Information

Attend Today, Achieve Tomorrow

The school day for students is 9:20am to 3:50pm. Buses arrive at school 10 minutes before school begins. Children should NOT arrive at school before 9:10am* as supervision is not provided. *If your student is eating school served breakfast, they may enter the building and proceed to the cafeteria at 9:05am. 
Students who arrive after 9:20am will need to report to the office for a tardy slip to be given to his/her teacher.

If a student is absent, parents or guardians are required to call the attendance line at 360.396.3603. This is a 24 hour message line, so absences can be called in at any time, but please no later than 9:30am on the day of the absence. We will attempt to contact you by phone for the reason for the absence if we have not heard from you by 10:30am.

If a student needs to be picked up early from school, parents must come to the office to sign out the child in the school office. For the safety of your child, please be prepared to show your photo identification. Messages for students regarding alternate bus or pick-up plans, etc., MUST be called into the main office by 3:30pm on regular school days, and by 2:30pm on early release days (Wednesdays).

If you know in advance that your child will be absent from school, please complete a Prior Excused Absence Request Formo en español, forma para solicitar por adelantado la aprobación y exusa de una ausencia. This form needs to be filled out and signed by both parent and student and submitted to the office PRIOR to their absence. The teacher and principal will either approve or deny the absence. All approved absences will be excused, and all denied absences will be unexcused.
