Report Absences

Attendance is positively linked to academic success.

If your child is absent, please call our attendance secretary at 360-662-2630. Leaving a message at this number will excuse an absence. You may also send a note with your child when they return to school. Our automated system will call student’s homes on the evening of each day they are absent unless you’ve called or sent a note to excuse the absence.

Learn more about our attendance rules under Info > Rules & Conduct section of our website. 

According to our district policy and state law, your child’s absence may be excused for illnesses, religious observances and family emergencies. Unexcused absences can carry serious consequences.

If you are planning an absence that will require your child to miss school for more than 3 days, please complete and submit an Extended Absence Request to the office at least five (5) school days prior to the absence.
