Regular attendance is critical to the learning process. Research shows that frequent absences from school seriously impact learning. When your child is going to be absent from school for any reason, the school must be notified by a student's parent or caregiver in order for absences to be considered excused. Notification should include the student's name, the date(s) of the absence(s), the reason for the absence(s), the parent/caregiver's name, and the name of the student's teacher. You may notify the school through one of the following ways:

  • Leave a voicemail message on the school 24-hour attendance hotline by calling 425-837-6407 as soon as possible, but no later than the start of school on the day of the absence(s);
  • Send an email message to as soon as possible, but no later than the start of school on the day of the absence(s). Only parents or caregivers may send email messages; students are not authorized to send in their own messages; or
  • Send a written note signed by the parent/caregiver with your child upon their return to school. A written note from a doctor may be required for extended absences.
