Attendance Procedures

  • Attendance Procedures for Reporting Absences From School


    Please notify the school if your child will be absent. There are several ways to contact us:

    1. Email each morning that your child will be absent. You may also email your child's teacher, however, it is best to include the school office in your email as well. Please send your email by 8:15 a.m. or prior to the absence, if known.

    2.Send a note, in advance of the absence, to the school office, (e.g. vacations, appointments, etc.)

    3.Call the school office at (503) 916-6244. Mornings are very busy so the best practice is to contact us by email if this option is available to you.
    Excused absences include:

    • Appointments
    • Family Emergency
    • Field Trip
    • Funeral
    • Health Exclusion
    • Hospital
    • Illness/Injury
    • Outdoor School
    • School Event
    • Vacation

    Please note that if we do not receive notification of your child's excused absence, you will receive a call from the Auto-Dialer Attendance Line or from the school office.

    We appreciate your assistance with our Attendance Procedures.

  • For purposes of our monthly awards, perfect attendance is defined as follows:

    No absences - excused or unexcused.

    No more than three excused tardies.
