Excused Absence Request Form 1-20 days
Excused Absence Request Form 20+ days
In case of absence or tardiness of student, please call Sunset Elementary at (425) 837-5600 and select option 1 to reach the attendance line. All absences are unexcused until we have heard from a child's parent.
If your child is planning to be absent for 1-20 days, please submit an Absence Request form to the office at least one week prior to the requested absence dates.
Absences may be excused with prior principal permission. When your child returns from an excused absence, the teacher will provide a list of make-up assignments, along with a reasonable timeline for completion. The student is responsible for completing missed work. (From ISD Elementary Schools Parent Handbook, pg 2)
Please make an attempt to schedule family trips during non-school dates. It is very difficult to make up lost instructional time. Absences for family trips without prior principal permission will result in an unexcused absence for the dates.
If your child is planning to be absent greater than 20 days, please submit an Absence Request form to the office at least one week prior to the requested absence dates.
If the absence is not pre-approved, the student will be withdrawn from enrollment after 20 days of absence.
Per RCW 28A.225.010, Students who are requesting to be excused for an absence for greater than 20 days must have a signed agreement between parent/guardian and school principal that the absence will not cause a serious adverse effect upon the student’s educational progress.
Forms can be found to the left.
