Regular attendance is essential to a student's success in school.  Persistent absenteeism creates a genuine hardship for a student and is regarded as a very serious problem. If your student is absent, please contact the school office at 360-396-3803 within 24 hours  to let us know the reason for the absence.. If you are unable to leave a message please send a note with your student explaining the reason for their absence when they return to school. 

Please be assured that the staff at Gordon Elementary will do all we can in identifying and accessing resources to support regular student attendance.
