CELL PHONE POLICY Being focused and mentally present in class is important for an authentic and engaging learning experience. Following the REDD Way requires connecting with the curriculum and being present and willing to learn. We can do this by limiting cell phone use and distractions during class time.

  • Students will be required to store their cell phones in the cell phone pouches and/or charging stations that are equipped in each classroom.

  • Cell phones will remain in the pouches for the duration of a class period with the exception of specific teacher direction.

  • Cell phones are not allowed out of the classroom when students leave during the period for purposes of restroom breaks, water breaks, etc.

Violations of this policy will result in the following: 1st Minor: Verbal warning (request to put phone back in pouch) and filling out a SWIS referral form. 2nd Minor: One-on-one conversation about the policy and filling out a SWIS referral form. Teacher will also email guardian. 3rd Minor: Fill out a SWIS referral form. Send student to Administration office. Teacher will call guardian by end of the day.

Attendance Policy Highlights Complete Attendance Policy can be found in the Student Handbook and in the School Board Policy.

  • Students who are more than 10 minutes late to class are considered absent. Students are required to sign in an out at the Attendance Office. Failure to do so, will result in an unexcused absence for that period.

  • State school law requires a verification of all absences. Such verification will be in written form or by telephone and presented to the Attendance Office upon the student's return to school.

  • Parents are requested to contact the attendance office on the day their student is absent from school. After 48 hours, absences are considered unexcused.

  • Attendance concern letters will be mailed home following the fifth and seventh absences, includes an attendance contract.

  • Early dismissals and pre-arranged absences must be arranged and paperwork handed into the Attendance Office PRIOR to the absence.

  • LEAVING CAMPUS WITHOUT PRIOR PERMISSION WILL NOT BE EXCUSED. This includes ALL students who do not sign in/out. Detention, In-School-Suspension and Out-of-School Suspension are consequences given to students who leave campus without permission. THREE SIMPLE WAYS TO REPORT ABSENCES:

  1. PHONE - call the Attendance Office at 425-844-4806. Please leave a message if no one answers, the phone rings all day long.

  2. EMAIL - please email to report your student's absence. You can also email for a bus pass, early dismissal or late arrival.

  • When sending an email or leaving a phone message, please leave the following information: Student's first and last name, the reason they are absent and their most prominent symptom (ie. fever, cough, vomiting, etc.)

  • If your student is absent due to a doctor or dentist appointment, it is recommended that you get a note before you leave the office stating that your student was seen that day. Your student can drop the doctor's note off in the attendance office. These notes will be put in your student's file in the Attendance Office. If for any reason your child has to appeal your doctor's notes can be accessed quickly to add to your appeal letter.
