Excusing Student Absences:

  • Please email [email protected], leave a voicemail at 425.413.6209 or send a note with your student(s) to excuse an absence/late arrival, or need a dismissal for any reason.
  • If your student must leave during power hour (10:25-11:25), please call or email before power hour begins (10:25), as we cannot locate students during that time.
  • The Attendance Office is on the West side (athletic fields entrance).
  • Absences must be excused within 48 hours of the date of absence. If they are not excused within 48 hours, progressive intervention will occur.
  • Parent/Guardian/Physician may excuse an absence.
  • If your student is 18 years and older, they can excuse themselves. Please have them see the attendance office for a form and more information. They will still be accountable for abiding by the attendance policy in the student handbook.

Off Campus/Running Start Students:  If you are off campus for one or more periods (Running Start, late arrival, early dismissal, seminary, PSSC, etc.) you can get information you might miss (assembly schedules, video announcements, etc.) by joining this Google Classroom zuxthxy.
