    Update from the Attendance Office – URGENT!

    Effective immediately… all parent/guardian emails excusing absences must contain contact information of the sender in the email, in order for the request to be processed.  The Attendance Office will no longer update student records from email with no contact information included.  (EX:  sender/parent/guardian name, phone number (matches student record)).  Please contact dlwilliams1@seattleschools.org if you have any questions.

    There seems to be some confusion with some attendance issues.  Here’s a recap and please send updates to ingrahamhs.attendance@seattleschools.org

    • Notify attendance via email if you have connectivity issues that lead to absences – they can be excused.
    • If your student was marked absent but was “logged in” – please be aware, login does not necessarily mean “present” – student must participate – see each class instruction from teacher. Contact teacher first, they clear discrepancy.
    • Parents have two (2) days to update attendance.
    • Family travel is unexcused.
    • Missed morning class? Participate in afternoon work session and not be marked absent.
    • Students can be dropped for 20 consecutive days of non-participation, unless documentation is on file.
    • Need assistance  – contact student counselor or Assistant Principal working with your student.
    • Class of 2021 seniors – if you haven’t met with your counselor yet – DO IT NOW!
    • Class of 2021 seniors – you must have 24 credits to graduate.

    Preplanned Absences (in lieu of form) During Remote Learning:

    Instructions – Emails must be provided at least three (3) days in advance of absence.

    • Review the Preplanned Absence form - absence must meet one of categories listed (college visits, sports, volunteering, etc.)
    • Submit one email to all your teachers, cc: attendance – Subject:  Preplanned Absence (state category from form)
    • Dates of absences
    • Explanation to teacher – per form what kind of absence are you taking, what volunteer organization, what sports event, etc.
    • State if you will have internet connectivity – do you plan to log in over the absence
    • Request teachers if work can be done in advance or suggestions for making up work (excused absences do not exempt students from turning in work; the work is allowed late per teacher discretion)
    • Each teacher will need to respond acknowledgement and cc attendance

    The Attendance Office will communicate with the Principal for final sign off, per usual process.


    World Language Credit Testing

    There are only two more district-wide sessions for World Language credit testing this school year. Please encourage students to sign up here.
