Good attendance is a great way to promote success in school. Being in class and on time are strongly linked with students who do well in school. This is why we take attendance so seriously.
Contact us as soon as possible if you know your child will be absent. You must contact us within two school days after your child’s absence to be excused. According to our district policy and state law, your child’s absence may be excused for illnesses, religious observances and family emergencies. Unexcused absences can carry serious consequences.
Extended Leave Request
If you are planning a trip that will require your child to miss school (more than 3 days), please submit this request to your child’s teacher. The principal is responsible for reviewing all extended leave requests. (CKSD School Board Policy 3122, RCW 28A.225).
Students who do not attend school for an extended period of time (excluding bereavement or medical leave) are asked to make a request at least 2 weeks prior to scheduled absence.
