Under the Washington State Compulsory Attendance Law, parents or guardians have the primary responsibility for keeping their students in regular attendance. Children may be excused for medical and dental appointments during school hours. Parents should request in writing that their child be released at a specific time or phone the office and request a release. Parents are to sign their children in and out of school at the school office when picking up or returning children to school during the school day. For a child to receive a perfect attendance award, he/she needs to be in attendance from 9:10 a.m. - 12 noon or from 12 noon - 3:20 p.m.

Medication at School:
According to state law and district policy, if it is necessary for your child to receive medication during school hours, a Medication Request Form must be filled out. This form is available at the school office. This form must be signed by the attending physician and the parent. The medication must be in the original container and be properly labeled. All medication will be kept in the school office. Please check with the physician regarding alternative times for administering medication such as before school, after school, and before bedtime. This policy applies to both prescription and non-prescription medicines, i.e., cough drops, aspirin, over-the-counter medications.
School personnel are trained to handle first aid for minor injuries. In case of serious injury or illness, parents will be contacted immediately. The child will be taken to a physician or hospital if the parents cannot be reached. Once again, it is imperative that we have an emergency phone number on file in the event that a parent cannot be reached.
