Attendance Policy

At Kokanee Elementary School we emphasize the importance of prompt and regular school attendance. Students need regular attendance to profit fully from learning experiences offered in school. Students miss significant instruction when they are absent from school; therefore, any absence affects student learning. Frequent absences and tardies will be addressed by the principals. 

The school may take a variety of actions to help improve a student’s attendance and timeliness, including the conversion of three unexcused or unacceptable tardies to an unexcused absence. The principals monitor rate of attendance and tardiness on an on-going basis. If there are extenuating circumstances causing increased tardiness and/or absences, please notify the office.

We value your child’s safety and would like to know when he/she is not in school. The school requires an email or phone message from the parent explaining the absence or late arrival. If the school does not receive notification of the child's absence, their attendance will be documented as unexcused.
