    Good Attendance Matters at Robert Eagle Staff MS

    every day counts! school success starts with attendance

    If your student will be absent or late to school, please let us know by contacting the attendance office at or call 206-413-2304

    Daily attendance is important for student success.  If students miss 15 min of a class it will be marked as an absence for that class period.  To have an absence be excused it must be reported within 3 days of the absence.

    Students Arriving Late or Leaving Early

    Any student arriving after the bell has rung must sign into the office and obtain a late slip to class. This includes arriving between passing periods. If for any reason students need to leave during the school day they MUST be signed out by an adult listed on their account.  Adults should bring an ID with them to verify they have authorization to pick up the student from school.  To expedite departures, please email the date and time details or have your student bring a note into the office.  Locating students during lunch is difficult, please be prepared to wait until after their lunch is over for them to be contacted to be dismissed.   

    For planned absences, such as medical procedures, please fill out and submit to the main office a Planned Absence Form.
