Attendance Form

This form is for requesting excused absences for Jackson-Reed High School (formerly Wilson High School) in Washington, DC. After you submit the form, you should receive a confirmation, and a copy goes to the attendance counselor. For early dismissals, the attendance counselor will call you to confirm it and then create an early dismissal pass for your student to pick up at STEP.

Note: Early dismissal passes can be picked up at the front entrance security desk.
