What if our family is going on vacation?
The state enforces attendance for students 180 days of the year. So that families and students can take needed breaks, the school district schedules time throughout the year including larger breaks like Thanksgiving break, Winter Break, and Mid-Winter Break. Vacations outside of this time are discouraged. If for rare reason your family needs to travel or take vacation outside of the district’s break time, new state attendance law states that in order for the absence to be excused, there must be pre-approval by the principal. This is new and will take some adjustment for us all. When scheduling family travel plans or vacations, when at all possible, please do so during that natural boundaries of district scheduled breaks. If your plans are unavoidable and fall within the normal school year, please send an approval request (prior to the vacation) by email or note TO BOTH Ashley Short (secretary) and Heidi Paul (principal).

How do I report an absence?

Based on state legislature and the Becca Bill, attendance is not only critical for success, but a legal requirement. Absences MUST be reported in order to be determined if they are excused. This year we have added a new feature for reporting student absences. You can now email your child’s absences to BellAttendance@lwsd.org , please include the following:
  1. The student’s FIRST & LAST NAME and GRADE
  2. The REASON for the absence
  3. The LENGTH of the absence (entire day(s) or specific time)

You may also call and report your child’s absence on the school attendance line: 425-936-2511, then select the option for “reporting an absence” or report an absence with email report an absence by email .
