    Please report absences and late arrivals to the main office by telephone or email:

    Main office telephone: 206-252-1300
    Attendance line message only number: 206-252-1302
    Attendance email: shwipplinger@seattleschools.org

    Please report all absences to the office in addition to your child's classroom teacher.

     Absences may be communicated after hours by leaving a voice mail message or by sending an email. The office follows up on unreported absences by telephoning parents/guardians. If we are unable to reach anyone, the absence is considered unexcused until confirmed otherwise. If your child is ill for more than three days or requires a medical leave, a doctor’s note may be required to excuse the absences. District policy requires that an attendance intervention meeting with the parent is set up after three unexcused/unreported absences per month.

    After twenty consecutive unexcused absences, a student is withdrawn from the school roster.
