Weekly Contact

Our goal at Edmonds eLearning Academy is to partner with families to ensure that students are meeting their attendance requirements. One of the most powerful ways to prepare a student for success in life is through regular school attendance.


How do we take attendance at EeLA?


Attendance is monitored through weekly contact. Our weeks start on Sunday and end Saturday at midnight. To be marked present, students are required to make two-way academic contact with at least one teacher, one time per week. Academic progress in classes is not the same as weekly contact, and parent/guardian contact does not count towards weekly contact.


Examples of weekly contact include but are not limited to:

  • A student discussing feedback with their teacher to improve a writing assignment or a student meeting with their teacher in a Zoom session to gain a greater understanding of mathematical concepts.

  • A student messaging their teachers through Edgenuity to discuss their goals for the week in their EeLA class(es).

  • A student/teacher phone call to check in about progress, goals, or any questions the student has.

If a student has valid justification for missing weekly contact, as defined by the Edmonds School Board, a guardian must contact the attendance office within two school days, and provide valid justification and documentation to excuse the missed contact. The attendance office phone number is 425-431-3908. Alternatively, guardians can complete the Absence Excuse Form.

Attendance is a mandatory requirement and must be fulfilled as part of your student’s enrollment at EeLA. Consequences for missed weekly contact without valid justification are as follows:

  • One week of missed contact - Student and guardian are notified of an unexcused absence by email address on file.

  • Two consecutive or three cumulative weeks - A mandatory student and parent conference will be scheduled by email. The student’s needs will be evaluated and a written improvement plan will be established.

  • Four cumulative missed contacts: A letter will be mailed home informing parents/guardians that the student is at-risk of a truancy referral.

  • Five consecutive or six cumulative weeks - EeLA is required to refer the student and parent for truancy as stated in WAC 392-550-040.

Owls on Skis

Hey Owls, time to ski! Stevens Pass will be opening its chairs in the next few weeks. Why not take a lesson or hit the slopes schussing?

Clothes for Kids

Hello and Happy Fall!

Clothes For Kids is still open and serving students by appointment. Any child who attends school in Snohomish County or the Northshore School District (Head Start/ECEAP through 12th grade) and requests help qualifies for Clothes For Kids. Each student can shop at Clothes For Kids twice per school year – once in the fall semester (Aug.-Dec.) and once in the spring semester (Jan.-May). Our sizes start at 3T and go up to 2XL adult.

Students will need to schedule an appointment online at https://clothesforkids.org/book-an-appointment/ and arrive at Clothes For Kids at the designated appointment time. If a family has more than one student shopper, separate appointments should be scheduled for each child with only one student from the family shopping in a 30-minute time slot. For example, if the family has three student shoppers, they should schedule three appointments in a row (9:30 a.m., 10 a.m., and 10:30 a.m.).

If families are unable to shop in person, we can choose clothing for the students and have it available for pick up at the Clothes For Kids shop within one week. Anyone can pick the clothes up on behalf of the student. To order clothing for pick-up, please complete this Google form for each student: https://loom.ly/psFuWhE
