Absence Reporting

How do I let the school know that my child will be absent?

Parents can call 703-228-5411 to notify the school of an excused absence. Parents have two days following an absence to excuse it by a phone call, or a note to the Attendance Office. If you child arrives late to school, he/she must bring a note and must sign “in” with the Attendance Office upon arrival. If leaving early, he/she must have a note, or the Attendance Office will call you for permission; he/she must sign “out” with the Attendance Office as well. If you call the Attendance Office, you do not need to send in a note. If you are notified of an absence in error, please let the Attendance Office know.
