Attendance Notification

ATTENDANCE:

Did you know?

  • Your children can suffer academically if they miss 10 percent of school days in a year, or about 18 days. That can be just one day every two weeks and can happen before you know it.
  • It doesn’t matter if these absences are excused or unexcused. They all represent lost time in the classroom and lost opportunities to learn.
  • Attendance matters as early as kindergarten. Studies show many children who miss too many days in kindergarten and first grade can struggle academically in later years. They often have trouble mastering reading by the end of third grade.
  • Preschool is a great time to start building a habit of good attendance. Studies show that poor attendance in preschool can predict absenteeism in later grades.
  • By middle and high school, chronic absence is a leading warning sign that a student will drop out.

School hours

All students between the ages of 8 and under 18 years are required by Washington state law to attend school regularly. If a parent or guardian enrolls a child at 6 or 7 years of age, the child is required by law to attend the full school session. To ensure compliance, each school takes regular attendance and the district has set a policy for excused and unexcused absences.

Parents or guardians must provide the school with an excuse for any absence, late arrival or early departure in the form of a note or personal contact with school officials. (Please refer to your child’s individual school student handbook.) Any absence not properly explained within three days of the student returning to school will not be excused without approval from an administrator.

 

 

 

 

 

 

ASISTENCIA:

 

¿Sabías Que?

 

•      Sus hijos pueden sufrir académicamente si pierden el 10 por ciento de los días escolares en un año, o aproximadamente 18 días. Eso puede ser un día cada dos semanas y puede suceder antes de que usted se dé cuenta.

•      No importa si estas ausencias son excusadas o injustificadas. Todas representan tiempo perdido en el salón y la pérdida de oportunidades para aprender.

•      La asistencia es importante desde el kínder. Estudios demuestran que muchos niños que faltan demasiados días en el kínder y el primer grado pueden tener dificultades académicas en los últimos años. A menudo tienen problemas para dominar la lectura al final del tercer grado.

•      La Preescolar es un buen momento para empezar a construir un hábito de buena asistencia. Los estudios demuestran que la mala asistencia en preescolar puede predecir el ausentismo en grados posteriores.

•      En la escuela intermedia y secundaria, la ausencia crónica es una señal de advertencia de que un estudiante abandonará los estudios.

 

Horas de escuela

 

Todos los estudiantes entre la edad de 8 y menores de 18 años son requeridos por la ley del estado de Washington asistir a la escuela regularmente. Si un padre o tutor matricula a un niño a los 6 o 7 años de edad, la ley requiere que el niño asista a la sesión completa de la escuela. Para asegurar el cumplimiento, cada escuela toma lista regularmente y el distrito ha establecido una política para ausencias excusadas y sin excusa.

 

Los padres o tutores deben proporcionar a la escuela la razón para cada ausencia, llegada tardía o salida anticipada en forma de una nota o contacto personal con los oficiales de la escuela. (Por favor refiérase al manual del estudiante de su hijo.) Cualquier ausencia sin explicación apropiada dentro de los tres días de que el estudiante regrese a la escuela, no será excusada sin la aprobación de un administrador.
