Pre-Arranged Absence


It is a state law that schools have in writing or receive a phone call as to why a student is

absent. No absence or tardy will be excused without a note or a phone call. The only excusable absences are illness, medical / dental appointments, religious occasions and funerals. The principal may approve personal reasons on a case by case basis. For additional attendance information, refer to the attendance section of the handbook.

Vacations must be approved by the principal two weeks in advance for them to be an excused absence. Please complete the Pre-Arranged Absence Form and return to the school office. Notes for anything other than vacations will only be accepted up to two (2) days after a student returns to class.

Tardies will not be excused for oversleeping or missed bus. Please call 425.431.7374 and press #1 to report an absence or tardy, state your child's name, room number and the reason they will be missing school.
