To report an absence, please call 253-571-5860 or email the attendance secretary here - GiaudroneAttendance@tacoma.k12.wa.us
After an absence, upon return to school bring a note from your parent or guardian or have them call before 7:45. Go to the attendance office to get a re-entry before going to 1st period. If you don’t bring a note or your parent doesn’t call, you are considered unexcused.
Excused Absence / Tardies
Parent / guardian must provide the school with a valid, written reason for an absence before it can be excused. A complete list of valid reasons for being excused according to District policy and state are listed in the student handbook
. All other tardies to school will be considered UNEXCUSED including missed busses and oversleeping.
Unexcused tardies result in a lunch detention the same day, so think ahead.
*Anyone picking up a student must be on the authorized pick up list and bring photo identification.
