Mountain View Elementary School
1919 Blaine Street
Port Townsend, WA 98368
Dear Mountain View Parents and Guardians:
This letter is written to explain important parts of our attendance policy. We must verify every absence for each of our students. The easiest way for us to do this is to get a signed note from parents or guardians that states the reason for the absence. If we don’t get notes then we must call. All absences are either excused or unexcused. Your signed note (with the reason for the absence) lets us determine if the absence is excused or not. School district policy defines what absences may be excused. They include:
Participation in a school-approved activity— An example would be a high school student attending a writing conference would be excused from math, art, science; all their remaining classes. Doesn’t fit elementary classes.
It’s best if kids attend every day that they’re physically able. When they don’t, we are governed by our district policy and state law for classifying absences as excused or unexcused and/or following truancy procedures. You can help us by making sure that your child misses school only for one of the reasons listed above, and by sending a signed note that explains why he or she was gone.
Thanks for your help. Please call us at 379-4530 if you need additional information
