Attendance Matters!
From the first day of school, teachers must take attendance daily to maintain state-based funding! Report absences or expected late arrivals/early departures (e.g., for a medical appointment) as follows:

when: contact the school by 8am
email (preferred): cherrycrestattendance@bsd405.org (corrected!)
phone: 425-456-4902 (warning: speak clearly and slowly for speech-to-text conversion).

Note! Cherry Crest students with homeroom teachers from other elementary schools will follow that school's attendance process.
