Policy and Procedures

Attendance Line: (253) 530-4207

Importance of Good Attendance

Attendance is important for academic success, and unexcused absences may be an early warning sign for unaddressed problems with school and future dropout. When youth fail to attend school, they are considered truant. Unexcused absences and tardies may result in a disciplinary action.

Attendance and School Work

Students are responsible for reporting to each class on time. Only a staff member can give permission to be late for class. Students are to use the restrooms during non-class times: before/after school, and during lunch, breaks, and passing times. During class, students must obtain permission and a written pass from their teacher and sign out in this planner in order to use the closest restroom. Staff may limit restroom requests. A note from a doctor may warrant exceptions.
