If your child is absent from school, please call our attendance line at (425) 408-4110. Your call will go to voicemail and you’ll be asked to record your student’s name, teacher, date of the absence, and the reason for the absence. If you like, rather than calling you may send a note to school including the same information, or drop by the office to report absence information in person.
If you do not call before 9:30, you may receive a call notifying you that your child is absent from school.
While classroom teachers enter daily attendance for their class in the district’s electronic Synergy System, they do not have access to the portion of the system in which absences are excused and reasons for the absences are entered. Because of this, absence information must be provided to the school office staff. If you send a note to school with your child, please ask them to drop it off at the office in the morning.
If an absence occurs and a parent or guardian does not notify the school office and provide a reason for the absence within 2 weeks, the status of that absence will automatically become unexcused, and the Washington State law (The Becca Bill) regarding unexcused absences will be followed. Once the status becomes unexcused, it cannot be changed.
