To excuse an absence for students attending a WANIC class at LW Institute of Technology or DigiPen, a parent/guardian can phone 425.739.8400 or email and indicate the student's full name, date of absence and detailed reason for the absence. Learn more here about State laws regarding what absences are considered excused. Absences must be excused within 48 hours of the missed day. If you are making plans and it is unavoidable that your student will be missing 3 or more school days, please complete the Pre-Arranged Absence Form at least one week prior to the absence.
