• Regular school attendance is important to your child’s progress. However, if your child is ill, we ask that you keep him/her at home. If your child is going to be absent, please call our school’s attendance line in the morning at (360) 652-4518. Excessive absences that are of concern will be handled on an individual basis. If a student will be absent due to a family vacation, the principal must grant approval in advance, otherwise, the absence(s) will be considered unexcused.
