Attendance

Our goal this year is to ensure that every student attends school regularly.

Showing up for school has a huge impact on a student's academic success starting in kindergarten and continuing through high school. Even as children grow older and more independent, families play a key role in making sure students get to school safely every day and understand why attendance is so important for success in school and in life.

We don’t want your child to fall behind in school and get discouraged.  Please ensure that your child attends school every day and arrives on time.  Here are a few practical tips to help support regular attendance:


        • Make sure your children keep a regular bedtime and establish a morning routine.
        • Lay out clothes and pack backpacks the night before.
        • Ensure your children go to school every day unless they are truly sick
        • Avoid scheduling vacations or doctor’s appointments when school is in session.
        • Talk to teachers and counselors for advice if your children feel anxious about going to school.
        • Develop back up plans for getting to school if something comes up.  Call on a family member, neighbor, or another parent to take your child to school.

If your child absent, a parent/guardian should call the office at 253.517.1400 on the day the student is absent from school without prearrangement. If the parent/guardian is unable to call in the absence, students must bring a note from home upon returning to school stating dates missed and reason for absence. This must be done within 48 hours of returning from the absence to be excused.

Let us know how we can best support you and your children so that they can show up for school on time every day.  We want your child to be successful in school!  If you have any questions or need more information please contact the Endeavour Office.
