Supporting Strong Attendance: We expect all students to be on time (7:30am) and attend regularly. We believe strong communication between home and school supports students who might be struggling with attendance. We ask parents to support their students by helping them get to school on time and by contacting the school attendance specialist regarding any absence or tardy by calling 425-456-7606, e-mailing at firstname.lastname@example.org or sending a note.
We truly hope everyone has had a wonderful summer and will be ready for an exciting school year. We are excited to welcome you to our new school for the launch of the 2015-16 school year.
