    1.The attendance office will gladly accept parent notes or phone calls to excuse student absences. The attendance office cannot accept other notes including doctor notes unless signed by the parent.

    2. If your student has an appointment and needs to leave early, please send a note with them in the morning. Be sure to indicate time of release. Students can fill out an attendance slip upon arrival and be released from class at the time indicated on the slip.

    3. Parents or legal guardians may call to excuse a student from school but they must still check out in attendance before leaving. The attendance office does not contact the student for release.

    4. The alternative to the above is to come into the attendance office to check your student out. Please bring identification.

    5. Students will not be excused if they do not check out in the attendance office before leaving campus. For safety reasons, we need to be able to account for students at all times. Thank you for helping us with this important duty. If a student should become ill during the school day, please have them check out through the health room. They can get parent permission to leave from there.

  • National Merit Scholar The National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) has announced Kent-Meridian High School Senior Kate Khazoyan as one of two Kent School District winners for its corporate-sponsored scholarships. Kate received a Boeing-sponsored National Merit Scholarship.
    “Growing up with two parents who work in engineering and math was very encouraging to me as I discovered my interest in biomedical engineering,” said Khazoyan. “I am appreciative that my dad's employer, the Boeing Company, has chosen to recognize my achievements and award me with a scholarship that will contribute to my education as an engineer.”
    “Only students with the strongest combination of academic skills and achievements, extracurricular accomplishments, and potential for success in rigorous university studies achieve this special honor. On behalf of the School Board, I extend our sincere congratulations to these young women,” said Superintendent Dr. Edward Lee Vargas.
    Most awards are renewable for up to four years of college undergraduate study and provide annual stipends that range from $500 to $10,000 per year. Some provide a single payment between $2,500 and $5,000. Recipients can use their awards at any regionally accredited U.S. college or university of their choice.
    NMSC will announce winners of college-sponsored and $2500 National Merit scholarships later in May.
