Blaine Elementary Attendance
 

In compliance with Washington State law, each student enrolled in Blaine Elementary is expected to attend classes on a regular basis. Daily attendance is one of the keys to a student's educational success. The only excused absences are those resulting from illness, medical/dental appointments, and those required by parents.

The student must bring a signed and dated note from the parent or guardian stating the reason for the absence. Please call the office to inform the school when your child is going to be absent.

UNEXCUSED ABSENCES:

Failure to attend any class or a school day without a valid reason is a truancy. It is the student's responsibility to report to class on time. Students must always go to class and get teacher permission to leave. If non-attendance is a problem then parents and school officials will meet to find ways to improve attendance.

All absences without a parent or guardian signed note will be considered unexcused. Chronic attendance problems will be referred to Whatcom County Courts.

If your child is absent:

  1. -Call the school at 332-5213

  2. -Let us know your child’s name, who their classroom teacher is, and the reason for the absence.

  3. -If before office hours, leave a voicemail.


When returning from absence:

-Bring a signed and dated note from the parent or guardian stating the reason for the absence.
