Becca Bill:  Northshore School District implements provisions of the revised Compulsory Attendance Law, RCW 28.A225, known as the “Becca Bill”.  The intent of this legislation is to direct schools to initiate a series of corrective steps when a student is absent and unexcused from attending school.  School attendance, by law, has been and continues to be compulsory.

Absences (illness, medical):  Every day of school is important to the education of your child, however a child should not be sent to school if he/she shows any signs of illness.

Absences (vacations, trips):  These absences are highly discouraged, but when taken, it is required that all class work missed be completed upon return.  It is the responsibility of the student to find out what work was missed.  It is advisable to inform the teacher of the absence prior to the occurrence if at all possible.  In some cases, the teacher may suggest activities/work to complete during the period of absence.
