Weapons Policy & Truancy Laws

Bellevue School District has a no-tolerance policy when it comes to weapons on campus. We are asking parents and guardians to explain the rules to their students so that our schools will continue to be safe places for both children and adults.

Washington State law requires school age children below 18 years of age to attend school. When a student has unexcused absences, the school will work with the student and parents/guardians to make sure the student comes to school.
