Attendance

If your child is either going to be absent for the entire day or late for any reason, call the school attendance line at 703-641-8282 before 9:00 a.m. or use our online attendance form. During after-school hours, a 24-hour answering machine will record your message. If the school does not receive a notification from the parent, the absence will be considered unverified. 

Excused Absences

  • Illness of the student, death in the family, doctor’s or dentist’s appointments and observance of a religious holiday.

Unexcused Absences

  • Family trips, childcare situations, non-school related activities, or missed school bus.
  • Any child who is absent from school for 15 consecutive days or more must be withdrawn from our enrollment.  Upon the child’s return, the parent must again officially enroll him/her.
