Attendance Information

ABSENTEE ALERT - (206) 236-3434

Dear Parents,

Please call any time your child will be absent or tardy to school.  If your child is absent for several days due to illness, please call each day.  We need to know your child is home safe with you any time they are not present at the beginning of the day when attendance is taken.

Mercer Island School District believes that healthy students engage and learn better in school. In an effort to promote wellness our When To Stay Home page has information on when students, staff and visitors should stay home if they are experiencing symptoms of a diagnosed or undiagnosed illness.


If your student will be back in time for lunch, please let us know if they will be receiving lunch.  Click here to review the lunch menu.
