ST. MARK PARISH SCHOOL STUDENT HANDBOOK
ATTENDANCE
 
Washington State law requires that all children between the ages of eight and fifteen attend school. It is the parents' obligation to see that children are in attendance regularly. Excuses for dismissal for appointments are the parents' responsibility. Every effort should be made to schedule appointments and family vacations outside of school hours. If an appointment must be scheduled during school hours, written notice must be submitted to the office on or before the day of the appointment for approval by the principal. Parents/guardians must pick up the student in the school office. It is the parents' responsibility to make arrangements with their child's teacher for any missed classroom work. No assignments will be issued in advance for any absence.
