Staff By Department
Parent Educational Opportunity
Parents/guardians can attend an online event 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 28, from Stanford Research Lab on the Triangulum of Nicotine, Vaping, and Cannabis.
Designed specifically for parents and guardians, this event aims to provide valuable insights and information about these pressing topics. This event is not sponsored by Stanwood-Camano School District.
Learn about the risks, potential benefits, and how to have open conversations with your children.
Attendance (EVERY DAY COUNTS)
We understand that students miss school for various reasons, many of which cannot be predicted or prevented. However, research shows that missing even 10 percent of school, or about 18 days in a year, can negatively impact a student's performance.
If your child is experiencing mental, emotional, or physical health issues that result in excessive (more than two in a month) or long-term absences, please get in touch with their counselor, the school nurse, or an administrator for assistance.
When students are absent, it is essential to excuse your students' absences within 72 hours of the student's return to school.
Please use the below process:
- Parents and guardians may excuse absences by calling the attendance secretary at 360-629-1305, through Absence Notification using their Family Access password, by emailing email@example.com, or by sending a note to the attendance office with the student.
- Messages on notes, voicemail, or email should include the first AND last name of the student, the date of the absence, the reason for the absence, and the parent or guardian's signature.
- Stanwood High School defines excused absences as due to illness, appointment, or family business.
- Oversleeping, car trouble, traffic congestion, and missing the bus are not considered excused absences.
- If the student has classes at Stanwood High School AND Lincoln Hill High School, you must contact BOTH schools to excuse absences.

WESCO Spectator Guidelines & Sportsmanship Code
The essential elements of character-building and ethics in interscholastic athletics are embodied in the concept of seven core principles: sportsmanship, discipline, leadership, teamwork, responsibility, dedication, and respect. To demonstrate sportsmanship in the stands, we ask all spectators to adhere to these 5 basic guidelines:
- I will appreciate all good plays and players whether they compete for my team or my opponent.
- I will remember that school athletics are an extension of the classroom, and that learning is taking place.
- I will be positive and use respectful language towards players, coaches, officials, and other spectators.
- I will respect the abilities and sensitivities of our opponents and officials, regardless of the outcome of the contest.
- I will remember that my actions reflect on others, including students, school, and the community.
