Dear KM Parent or Guardian: Yesterday we informed you (via an evening auto-dial message) and your student(s) of a rumor of possible disruptions at Kent-Meridian High School today. The rumors were investigated fully and determined to be without merit. Still, in an abundance of caution we increased our usual strong security presence with local law enforcement and additional KSD Safety Officers on KM’s campus and across the district. We will continue to make every effort to ensure that every one of our students is safe, every day. We are moving forward with safe and calm learning environment at KM, and I promise you that we will continue to be diligent about investigating all rumors and potential threats involving our students or campus. As you know KM serves over 2,100 students each day, and it also hosts over 180 caring and professionally trained adults, including law enforcement safety officers—all committed to keeping your child safe. If you have any questions or concerns, please call me at 253-373-7403. Thank you for your support. Sincerely, Dr. Wade R Barringer Principal Kent-Meridian High School

ATTENDANCE OFFICE PROCEDURES
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.
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.
