Hockinson High School Attendance Line . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 360-448-6451
Every day is an important one at Hockinson High School. Good attendance is vital to the success of each student.
If your child will be absent from school, please call our attendance line (360-448-6451)
as early in the day as possible. When calling, state your name,
student’s name, and the reason for the absence. When your student
returns to school after an absence, state law and board policy requires
that he/she bring a note from home, signed by a parent or guardian,
stating the date and reason for the absence. The note must include current date, date of absence, reason for absence, and parent or guardian signature. If a student is ill for three days or more, a note from a physician must accompany the note from home.
Please keep in mind that a parent’s note is not the
only determining factor in whether the student’s absence is excused or
unexcused. An excused absence is granted for a student’s illness,
health care appointment, suspension, school related activities, or if
the absence is pre-arranged by parent request. It is the student’s
responsibility to make up work when absent.
The school office should be notified at least seven school days prior to any planned absence. A Pre-Arranged Absence Request Form
is available in the school office. Parents or guardians must complete
the required information; the form is then submitted to each teacher and
the principal for approval. It is the responsibility of the student to
make-up any work missed while gone from school.
MID-DAY STUDENT CHECK-OUT
Students who need to leave school during the day must
be signed out by a parent or guardian in the school office. We must
have written or verbal approval from the parent or guardian if someone
else picks up the student from school.
If you have any questions regarding our attendance policies and procedures, please call our office at 360-448-6451.
