Absences

When your student is ABSENT or LATE, please call the school at 360-877-5463 by 9:00 a.m. that day, or send a written excuse to the office upon your student’s return to school.  All late students must come in to the office to be checked in prior to going to class. 

When returning from an excused absence, students shall be permitted to make up all missed assignments.  Teachers will allow, as a minimum, one day in which to make up missed assignments and/or tests, for each day of absence.  However, long-term assignments, papers, and projects are due when the student returns to school.  In classes where participation is a critical objective (e.g. P.E.), the teacher will establish reasonable conditions for students to make-up assignments, which may extend the one day minimum.

Extended Absences

In the event a student will miss 3 or more consecutive days of school, parents/guardians should notify the school secretary and teacher(s) to make arrangements to receive make-up assignments.  Students will be allowed to make up any work missed during an approved absence within a time frame worked out between the teacher and parent/guardian. Parents/guardians should understand that even though a student may have an approved absence, their grade may still be adversely affected by their absence, especially if they miss classroom instruction. 

School Closures and Delays

School Messenger will notify you in case of an emergency closure, late start, early release or even a lock down.  In the event there is a power outage, we suggest you listen to your local radio/news station or click on the link below for Flash News.

Permission to Leave School/Picking up Students from School

Because student safety is a top concern, we will not release students during the school day unless an authorized person is here to sign them out of our building.  If your student will be leaving school mid-day, please make arrangements through the office and notify your student prior to the start of the school day.  If there is a change in your student’s after school transportation, please call the main office by 1:00 p.m. on a full-day and 10:00 a.m. on a half-day to allow time to notify your student.  As school attendance is important and early pick-ups can be disruptive to the educational process, we encourage parents to wait until school is dismissed before picking up their student.

Student Withdrawals

If a student plans to move from our school district, the parent/guardian should call the school or provide written notification to the office several days in advance of moving. Please make sure all library books, classroom books, sports uniforms, etc. are returned and all fines are paid before withdrawing.
