Students will attend regularly scheduled classes unless officially excused.
Washington State Compulsory Attendance Law (Becca Law) and Auburn School District policy require parents/guardians to ensure students ages six to eighteen years of age, attend school every day school is in session.
Students must attend school regularly and be on time to classes. The single greatest reason students fail classes and do not graduate is irregular attendance. This is the case even when absences are excused, but become excessive. Tardiness is another form of poor attendance.
There are occasions when students do need to miss school and are excused. Reasons for excused absences are: injury or illness; authorized student activities; school sponsored activities; religious holidays; doctor and dental appointments; special non-school activities; and absences prearranged at the discretion of the principal.
If one of these situations arises, a parent should telephone the school office before the start of the school day, or send a note to the office the day before the absence.
Students arriving late to school must go to the school office for an admittance slip.Evergreen Height's Student Responsibilities
