Change in Plans?

If your student is going to deviate from their normal method of getting home or has some other change of plan, the Change in Plan form can be used to report this information to the teacher.

Please send this form or a note with your student when they have a change of this type.

Pre-Approved Absence Request

Will you be gone for more than 5 days?  If so, please fill out a Pre-Approved Absence Request form and return it to the Arrowhead Office.

Attendance Policy

Regular school attendance is required and is necessary if students are to succeed academically. Arrowhead Elementary School is committed to working with parents to ensure that students regularly attend school.

Northshore School District, in compliance with Board Policy and Washington State Law, requires parents/guardians to inform the school of student absences. Please report your child's absence and reason for absence before 9:00 a.m. at 425.408.4010. Student absences need to be reported in writing, by phone, or in person at the school office. Teachers will not be able to properly document planned absences; therefore, report those absences to the office as well.

Absences not excused within 48 hours of the absence are automatically considered "unexcused." This status cannot be changed after this 48 hour period.
