Delay In Skyward Messages: Families, we have been experiencing occasional delays in our Skyward messaging system so many of you may not have been receiving Bear Bytes on its normal schedule. We are diligently working to resolve the issue; Bear Byte editions can also be found, each week, on our THS website!

Excusing Student Absences:

  • Please email [email protected], leave a voicemail at 425.413.6209 or send a note with your student(s) to excuse an absence/late arrival, or need a dismissal for any reason.
  • If your student must leave during power hour (10:25-11:25), please call or email before power hour begins (10:25), as we cannot locate students during that time.
  • The Attendance Office is on the West side (athletic fields entrance).
  • Absences must be excused within 48 hours of the date of absence. If they are not excused within 48 hours, progressive intervention will occur.
  • Parent/Guardian/Physician may excuse an absence.
  • If your student is 18 years and older, they can excuse themselves. Please have them see the attendance office for a form and more information. They will still be accountable for abiding by the attendance policy in the student handbook.
