• 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

     

    Screen for Illness Every Day, Stay Home When Sick

    One of the most important prevention strategies guidelines is screening students daily for any signs of illness prior to leaving home for school. Any student who is ill or presents with COVID-like symptoms is to remain at home. Evaluating COVID symptoms or exposure can be found on our Health and Related Services page. This document provides the details of the policies and protocols related to COVID-19, and it is continually updated to align with public health guidance as it evolves during the school year.

     

    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
