Attendance Matters!

When Your Child Is Out:

Henrico Code of Conduct states:

  • When a student accumulates five (5) unexcused absences, the parent will be contacted and the school social worker will develop a plan with the parents to resolve the student’s nonattendance.
  • When a student accumulates six (6) unexcused absences, the social worker supervisor will report the attendance status to the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office.
  • When a student accumulates seven (7) unexcused absences, the school social worker will file a complaint against the student and /or parent through Henrico Juvenile & Domestic Relations Court.
  • A written statement by a physician is required when a student misses more than 10 days during the school year because of illness.

Helpful Hints:

  • Please call the school the day of your child’s absence.
  • If you forget to call the day of the absence please send a note within 24 hours of the absence.
