Importance of Good Attendance

Attendance and School Work

Class Attendance and On-Time Arrival

Students are responsible for reporting to each class on time. If a student will be late reporting to school due to an appointment or true family emergency, we ask that a parent call the school to report such circumstance, or send a written note with student.  All tardies other than for an appointment or true family emergency are considered unexcused and will result in an infraction. Students arriving late to class throughout the day may receive an infraction from the teacher.

Absences

Parents or Guardians must call the school (253) 530-1429   if a student is expected to be tardy or absent. If this call is not made on the day of the absence, parents or guardians must send a note to school including the student’s first and last name, grade level, date(s) of absence, and reason for absence. Please include a daytime telephone number or email address where we can contact you. The parent or guardian is asked to notify the office at least two weeks prior to any scheduled absence. Student will be given a form to obtain teacher signatures, which form must be returned to the school office prior to the absence.
