12th Grade Sub School Support Staff

Regular attendance is important to success in school! All students are expected to attend school regularly and on time. Students are required to attend all classes on their schedule each day. Students who choose not to attend school on a regular basis will be considered truant; this is a violation of Virginia law (§22.1-254). As such, if the student is under eighteen years of age, the attendance officer will file a complaint with the Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court alleging the student is a child in need of supervision and/or initiate proceedings against the parent(s). Virginia law notes that a parent/guardian is responsible for regular and punctual attendance of children in their charge who are within the compulsory attendance age. Any student who misses fifteen (15) consecutive days during the school year without approved Homebound Instruction will be withdrawn from school. When a student is absent from one or more classes, the school's computer system calls home on the day of the absence between 6:00 p.m. - 9:30 p.m. to notify parents/guardians. When a student has accumulated a specific number of excused or unexcused absences in a class the school will notify the parent/guardian by letter. This letter is automatically generated by the school's computer system. If a parent/guardian has a question about an absence that appears on the letter he/she is asked to contact the teacher immediately. Absences for each class are also indicated on the student's report card. Parents/guardians may communicate with the school's attendance assistant, Mrs. Armstrong, by phone or email. The phone number is 571.377.7037. Use the "Contact Form" in the menu on the left to send an email.
