Excused Absences (doctor or dentist appointments/illness)

Student absences need to be reported in writing, by phone, or in person at the school office. If your student is going to be absent or late, please call our attendance line listed above and report:

o   Your name

o   Child’s name

o   Teacher’s name

o   Reason and date of absence or tardy

o   If your child is going to be tardy, it is also helpful to include which lunch s/he will be buying.

Note: More than 13 absences a year are viewed as excessive except for extenuating illnesses with doctor’s support.

Pre-Arranged Absences (3 or more days)
Absences for reasons other than doctor/dentist appointments or illness must be pre-arranged. To help comply with the Northshore School District attendance policy and Washington State law, families need to fill out a Pre-arranged Absence Form for pre-planned absences. This form can be found on our school website or in the main office.

Unexcused Absences
In the case of an absent student, if you, as the student’s parent/guardian, have not contacted the school by 9:30 a.m., NSD’s automated notification system will send an email and call the home number to let you know that your child is not at school. Parents/guardians then have (2) two days to contact the school office with an explanation for the absence.  Absences not excused within 2 days of the absence are automatically considered "unexcused." This status cannot be changed as per Washington State.
