Information from the Attendance Office

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! 

Please email if your student is staying home for the day. 

If arriving late, please be aware that our doors are locked during the school day for everyone’s security. There is a white call button to the left of the front door if someone is not visible at the front lobby desk. ILHS staff will answer momentarily and provide entry.

If your student needs to leave early, please call 425-408-6210 to leave a message on our attendance phone line or email We will give them an Early Dismissal pass to give to their teacher when it is time to leave. We want to have students advocate for themselves by coming to the lobby on their own at the appointed time via this pass system. Calling the day before means the pass will be waiting for them as they arrive in the morning of the day they will be leaving early.

For day-of parent notifications, please tell your student to come to the front lobby desk to pick up their Early Dismissal pass before it is time to leave. Good times to stop by are before school, during nutrition break, or during lunch. We are trying out best not to call a classroom and interrupt instruction to retrieve a student for an early dismissal.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.

Student Success & What Parents Can Do to Help

Innovation Lab High School wants your student to be successful! Parents and guardians can help their student by promoting and encouraging regular, punctual attendance.

Every effort will be made to record attendance notifications received by 2:30 PM throughout the school week. Notifications received after 2:30 PM will be recorded the next school day. Parents and guardians can view attendance by logging in to ParentVUE.

What parents can do to help:
Certain attendance practices completed throughout the school year by parents/guardians (and students themselves) will help a great deal as students near the end of the grading period and face attendance appeals:

  • Maintaining a record of absences and the reasons on a calendar throughout the school year.
  • Providing doctor's notes for medical, dental or orthodontic visits as they happen during the school year.

Following up immediately when a student has been absent is important and helpful to all parties.

We are here to help! Please contact us at​​​​​​​ if you have any questions about our policy or your student's attendance.
