• Attendance

     

    What is good attendance? 

    Missing school one-day or less each month or no more than nine days a year.

     

    In brief, Virginia law:

    * requires parents to send children to school

    * requires students to attend school

    * requires schools to take specific actions when children are not enrolled or students fail to attend

    * authorizes law enforcement officers to pick up students who are skipping school

    * authorizes juvenile courts to take action against parents and/or children for failure to attend school

     

    Parents can verify their student’s absences by using one of the following methods:

  • CORRECTIONS TO ATTENDANCE

    It is possible for errors to occur when entering classroom attendance. If a student suspects there may be an error in his/her attendance record, the student is to contact the teacher who entered the attendance in question. The attendance assistant can only accept attendance corrections/changes from teachers
