2 STEPS TO AN EXCUSED ABSENCE!!!
1. If your child is absent, please call the school at 381-3388 before 7:30 a.m. If you do not call us, we will call you each day.
2. For an absence to be excused, it must be followed up with a written excuse within 3 days. FCPS Board Policy does not allow us to accept notes after this time and absences will remain unexcused. Remember, when you take your child to a doctor or dentist, get a note.
See all the details in FCPS Code of Conduct .
What is an excused absence/tardy?
- Death of immediate family member
- Illness of student: Parents have a total of ten (10) parent notes to write for student illness. After a total of ten (10) cumulative absences due to illness, students are required to present a written statement from a medical professional for each additional absence for the school year in order to be excused.
- Religious holidays and practices
- Medical and dental appointments
- Family emergencies: limited to three (3) cumulative absent events per school year, as approved by the Principal.
