We encourage students to be at school on time EVERY day. Regular attendance is essential to a student’s success in school. Students receive the full benefit of classroom instruction only when they attend on a regular basis. Bell times are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday 9:15 a.m. - 3:40 p.m. and Wednesday 9:15 a.m. - 1:30 pm. The first bell rings 5 minutes before the beginning of school. A student is tardy if they are not inside the classroom by 9:15 a.m.
When you know your child is not going to be at school due to illness, religious observances or family emergencies, please call 425-837-5500 or email CaAttendance@issaquah.wednet.edu to report the absence. If you receive a phone message that your child is absent and you believe your child to be at school, please email your child's teacher and the attendance office.
Report an Absence
All absences must be reported to the school office. The two options for reporting an illness are:
- Call the mainline at 425-837-5500 and leave a detailed message.
- Email CaAttendance@issaquah.wednet.edu
All absences that are not due to illness must be in writing to be excused. Please email CaAttendance@issaquah.wednet.edu with the following information:
- Student Name
- Dates of absence
- Reason for absence
Going on vacation? Email the attendance office with student and teacher name and dates of absence.
If you're going to be gone three consecutive school days, you must fill out a pre-approved absence form and return to the office one week prior to the first day of the absence.
