The following Jason Lee Elementary Attendance Policy is designed to promote regular attendance, academic achievement and safety for all Jason Lee students:

  • Please call the 24 hour school attendance line at 509-967-6490 & leave a voice message by 8:45 a.m. to report your student’s absence for the day. It is required by State law that we have communication from you as to why your child is absent from school.
  • A conference will be scheduled with the parent, teacher and building administrator to devise a plan for improved attendance when a student reaches:
    • 5 absences in a single month
    • 10 absences in the school year
    • 15 excused or unexcused tardies in a trimester
  • The Jason Lee tardy policy is designed to decrease the number of tardies and have students in class ready to learn by 8:45 a.m. The following totals are for the trimester:
    • 10 excused or unexcused tardies = parent letter sent home
    • 15 excused or unexcused tardies = conference with parents
  • For your convenience, pre-arranged absence request forms are available in the office.
