Woodinville High School wants your student to be successful! Parents and guardians can help their student by promoting and encouraging regular, punctual attendance. Being in every class period and on time every school day ready to learn at the bell is very important and leads to a positive learning environment for all students and staff.
Every effort will be made to record attendance notifications received by 2:30 PM on school days. Notifications received after 2:30 PM will be recorded the next school day. Parents and guardians can view attendance by logging in to ParentVUE.
What parents can do to help...
Certain attendance practices completed throughout the school year by parents/guardians and students greatly help their son or daughter and themselves as they near the end of the grading period and face attendance appeals:
- Parents/guardians contacting the Attendance Office within two school days of any absences and indicate the reason for the absence.
- Maintaining a record of absences and the reasons on a calendar throughout the school year.
- Providing doctor's notes for medical, dental or orthodontic visits as they happen during the school year.
- Students who are not feeling well should check-out with Nurse Callahan in the Health Room before leaving campus as the absence related to an illness verified by the nurse will then be noted as such in the student information system (Synergy).
All parents and guardians should be receiving an automated School Messenger phone call (and email if an email address has been provided to the Counseling Center) when their student has been absent. Following up immediately is important and helpful to all parties.
For a complete copy of WHS's attendance policy refer to page 19 of your student's copy of the 2019-20 Student Handbook.
We are here to help! Please contact the Attendance Office if you have any questions about our policy or your student's attendance.
