Late Arrivals & Tardies

Download "Note to Attendance"

Students arriving to school late must sign in at the Attendance Office and obtain a pass before going to class. A parent/guardian signed, written note or a parent/guardian phone call is required within 72 hours of the late arrival or the student will continue to be marked unexcused. A reason for the late arrival must be provided. 

A student who is tardy will be marked "late" when he or she is not in the classroom by the bell, ready to work as defined by his or her teacher. Students who are more than fifteen (15) minutes late to class are marked "absent".

Students with 4 or more unexcused "late" arrivals will receive after school detention. Progressive discipline will be assigned by the appropriate assistant principal for excessive tardies. 

Please be aware that the WHS attendance phone line 425.408.7410 rings continuously throughout the day and even more so in the mornings. If you call and receive the voicemail, please do leave your message. It is checked regularly throughout the day.

WHS's absence/tardy form, "Note to the WHS Attendance Office" can be completed and signed by the parent/guardian and delivered to the Attendance Office by the student. Forms are available at the Attendance Office or can be downloaded at home by clicking on the button above.
