Dear Parent/Guardian,

This year, Naches Valley School District is making a special effort to ensure that all students fully benefit from their education by attending school regularly.  Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school—and themselves.  Your student can start (or continue!) building this habit so they learn that going to school on time, every day is important.  Consistent attendance will help children do well in high school, college, and at work.


  • Absences can be a sign that a student is losing interest in school, struggling with school work, dealing with a bully or facing some other potentially serious difficulty.

  • Missing 10 percent (or about 18 days) increases the chance that your student will not read or master math at the same level as their peers.  

  • Students can still fall behind if they miss just a day or two days every few weeks.

  • Even being late to school may lead to poor attendance.  

  • Absences can affect the whole classroom if the teacher has to slow down learning to help children catch up.

  • Starting in kindergarten, too many absences (excused and unexcused) can cause children to fall behind in school.  

  • By 6th grade, absenteeism is one of three signs that a student may drop out of high school.  

  • By being present at school, your child learns valuable social skills and has the opportunity to develop meaningful relationships with other students and school staff.  

  • By 9th grade, regular and high attendance is a better predictor of graduation rates than 8th grade test scores.


We miss your student when they are gone and we value their contributions to our school. We would like you to help ensure that your student attends regularly and is successful in school.  If your student is going to be absent, please contact your School Secretary:  (Elementary 653-1510 , Middle 653-1543, High 653-1616.)


We know that there are a wide variety of reasons that students are absent from school, from health concerns to transportation challenges.  We are prepared to help you and your student face any challenges in getting to school regularly or on time.  For help, contact your school Counselor, Nurse, Principal or Assistant Principal.  We promise to track attendance daily, to notice when your student is missing from class, communicate with you to understand why they were absent, and to identify barriers and supports available to overcome challenges you may face in helping your student attend school.


It is important that you understand our school policies and procedures, as well as Washington State Law, to ensure your child is successful in school. State law for mandatory attendance, called the Becca Bill, requires children from age 8 to 17 to attend a public school, private school, or a district-approved home school program.

We at school are required to take daily attendance and notify you when your student has an unexcused absence.

Generally, after two unexcused absences in one month, we will schedule a conference with you and your student to identify the barriers and supports available to ensure regular attendance.  We will work with you to develop a plan to best meet the needs of your student and reduce absenteeism.  (from RCW 28A.225.020)

After five excused absences in any month, or ten or more excused absences in the school year, the school district will contact you to schedule a conference at a mutually agreeable, reasonable time with a district employee, to identify the barriers and supports available to you and your student. A conference is not required if your student has provided a doctor’s note, or pre-arranged the absence in writing,  and the parent, student and school have made plan so your student does not fall behind academically.

If your student has seven unexcused absences in any month or ten unexcused absences within the school year, we are required to file a petition with the Juvenile court, noting a violation of state mandatory attendance laws (RCW 28A.225.010).

At Naches Valley, we have established rules on attendance that will help you ensure your student is attending regularly.  They are available in each school handbook.


  • Set a regular bed time and morning routine.

  • Prepare for school the night before, finishing homework and getting a good night’s sleep.

  • Find out what day school starts and make sure your child has the required immunizations.

  • Don’t let your student stay home unless they are truly sick. Keep in mind complaints of a stomach ache or headache can be a sign of anxiety and not a reason to stay home.

  • Avoid appointments and extended trips when school is in session.

  • Develop back-up plans for getting to school if something comes up. Call on a family member, a neighbor, or another parent.

  • Keep track of your student’s attendance.  Missing more than 9 days could put your student at risk of falling behind.  

  • Talk to your student about the importance of attendance.

  • Talk to your students’ teachers if you notice sudden changes in behavior. These could be tied to something going on at school.

  • Encourage meaningful afterschool activities, including sports and clubs.

THANKS for helping your student get to school EVERY day!
