Attendance in class is very important. Students are expected to be in class every day, on time, and ready to learn. Even when an absence is excused, many skills are learned and practiced during labs and cannot be re-created following an absence.

The attendance policy is described on the WANIC website here. Pay careful attention to what constitutes an excused absence and pre-arranging an absence.

Parents/guardians must email wanic@lwsd.org or call in to the WANIC office (425) 739-8400 to excuse your student within 48 hours of an absence. Please indicate the student’s full name and a reason for the absence. Until a reason is provided, the absence will remain unexcused. It is customary to inform the teacher of absences as well, but in order to record and excuse the absence, the WANIC office must hear from a parent/guardian directly. Note: Parent/guardian calls or emails to the student’s home high school do not reach WANIC – you must contact WANIC directly.

 

HEALTH CONCERNS:

If your student has a serious medical condition (such as seizures, asthma, diabetes, cardiac condition, or allergy requiring epinephrine) or other significant medical or behavioral condition, you must inform the WANIC office immediately. If the student requires (or may require) medication during WANIC school hours, the student is required to have a signed Medication Administration Authorization form for each medication, and the medication must be brought by the parent/guardian to the WANIC office ON or BEFORE the first day of school. If these are not received, we will call the parent/guardian to pick up your student immediately. There are three Medication Administration Authorization forms (attached) depending on the type of medication needed. Please print the correct form (one for each medication) and take it to your student’s medical provider to be completed and signed. For more information see the Medication at School page on the LWSD website here. For any questions/concerns regarding your student’s health, forms, or medications, contact the WANIC office right away.

If these are not received, we will call the parent/guardian to pick up your student immediately. There are three Medication Administration Authorization forms (attached) depending on the type of medication needed. Please print the correct form (one for each medication) and take it to your student’s medical provider to be completed and signed.
