Reminder from Ms Hubbard About Attendance Procedures

With regard to remote attendance, and OR in person, please follow the three steps below whenever you receive the automated messenger call, and OR IF you are reporting an absence.

First, email the teacher (s) immediately and report the reason why your student was not able to be in class.  (The teacher (s) are the attendance takers, markers, correctors and changers to student attendance.)

Second, an attendance absence form is required to be completed by the parent ONLY.  The form is linked here: https://garfieldhs.seattleschools.org/UserFiles/Servers/Server_7283/File/Resources/Attendance/attendance-form-ADA.pdf

Email the form to garfieldhs.attendance@seattleschools.org to report your student’s absence so it can be recorded. 

Below are the SPS EXCUSED REMOTE LEARNING ABSENCE REASONS:

  •   Student or family health issues
  •   Lack of connectivity, (e.g., lack of necessary instructional tools)
  •   Student’s employment, or other family obligations during scheduled school hours
  •   Parent work schedule
  •   Caring for a family member

Thank you GHS Families

Stay Safe and remember “Attendance Matters”
