Definition of absence
The new proposed Chapter 392-401 WAC defines an absence as when a student is:
(a) Not physically present on school grounds; and (b) Not participating in the following activities at an approved location:
BULLETIN NO. 062-18 OSSI Page 2 June 26, 2018 (i) Instruction; (ii) Any instruction-related activity; or (iii) Any other district or school approved activity regulated by an instructional/academic accountability system, such as participation in district sponsored sports.
OSPI has determined the phrase, “not physically present on school grounds” should be broadly interpreted as a student that is not in their assigned or expected setting, and still on school property. Therefore, according to the adopted definition, a student skipping class but still on campus should be considered absent.

Message for Parents and Inclement Weather
When the Washtucna School District experiences inclement weather (severe snow, rain or ice) and if you feel that it is “unsafe” for your son/daughter to ride the school bus or drive to school, please contact the school in advance to the start of the school day and your son/daughter will receive an excused absence for that day. This excused absence will not be counted against them and assignments can be made up without any problems. Please contact Mr. Wing if you have any questions or concerns.
