How to Report an Absence at NTHS

  • Attendance Office: 360-412-4801

    Lisa Niles

    Absence reporting options:

    • Skyward Family Access (instructions below)
    • A handwritten note (turned in or faxed)
    • A phone call to the attendance office
    • Email from parent/guardian to the attendance office

    Absences will be recorded as excused only if appropriate documentation is received.

    Students are expected to attend all classes each day. A student returning to school after an absence reports directly to class and is expected to make up all the missed work. Students will be given one (1) school day for every day of excused absence to make up the missed work. Teachers may choose to extend the time at their discretion.
