Families who have enrolled their child in kindergarten will receive a letter over the summer from Hazel Wolf inviting them to participate. Families will need to return needed health and safety forms ahead of time.

Green Cards for Buses
To request a temporary green card for your child to ride on a bus with a friend or to get off at a different stop please do one of the following: email hazelwolf.attendance@seattleschools.org or send a note in with your child.  Currently we are unable to give green cards for bus 524 as it is listed at full capacity.  Most door to door service buses are also at full capacity.  It is best to request a green card at least a day in advance but can also be done the day of at least an hour before school gets out.
Reporting Attendance
hazelwolf.attendance@seattleschools.org is up and running correctly!  You may also call the attendance line at 206-252-3584.  Please report attendance, absence or late, ahead of time.  Calls are made early in the morning to check in on unreported absences. 

FYI for how attendance works: for elementary the attendance is done two times during the day AM & PM, if your student misses an hour on either end it will be indicated as an absence for that section.  (i.e. Sally arrives at school at 10 AM- that would be an absence for the AM but present for the PM).  Middle School if they miss 15 min of a class it will be marked as an absence for that class period for Monday- Wednesday and if they miss 45 min on their Thursday-Friday block schedule.  To have an absence be excused it must be reported within 3 days of the absence. For extended trips you must pick up a planned absence form from the office, fill it out, have teachers sign it, and return it at least 3 days before the planned absence. As always if you have questions feel free to ask on the attendance line or email. 

You can also check out the district page on matters dealing with Truancy
