Attendance

All absences must be reported to the school office.

The two options for reporting an absence:

Please include the following information:

  • Student Name
  • Teacher
  • Dates of absence
  • Reason for absence
If your student will miss 3+ consecutive school days, you must fill out the appropriate Pre-Arranged Absence Form and return to the school office one week prior

Family Trips During Assessment Windows

As we have done in the past, family trips taken during assessment windows will be marked as Unexcused. The data collected during these assessments informs our practice and supports your child’s learning.   Naturally, our preference is for families to travel during vacation periods outlined by the ISD.

Attendance Calls, Doors, and Tardies

If your child is absent and we have been notified in advance, you should not receive an automated call from the ISD.   If you receive an attendance call, please call the school office at 425-837-7400 to excuse the absence.   

To keep our building secure, all doors except the main doors at the front of the school automatically lock at 9:15 a.m. If your child arrives after 9:15 a.m. they will enter through our main doors. Students will be directed to sign in so we can ensure accurate attendance reporting.  

 

 

If you need to pick up your student during school hours, please come into the school office and provide your Guardian ID (Driver’s License).   When possible, please notify us in advance of your plans in email to: SHAttendance@issaquah.wednet.edu AND cc: Classroom Teacher

If your student’s dismissal plans change during the school day, please call the school office as soon as possible to notify us at 425-837-7400.   Please do not email your student’s teacher during the day with after school change of plans.
