What are the attendance procedures and policies?
Online Attendance Form
If your child attends an Academy course, all absences must be excused BOTH at their high school (base school) AND the Academy.
Three ways to submit an absence:
- Submit online attendance form
- Call 24/7 attendance line at 703-714-5544
- Send email to [email protected]
If you do not notify the Academy office beforehand, please send a note with your student on his or her first day back or email the Academy office.
All students attending the Academy from a high school other than Marshall will be required to wear their student ID badge.
Students are expected to attend all classes and arrive on time for each class. Academy students and parent or guardians are expected to comply with these FCPS attendance policies at the Academy just as they do at their base school.
If you know your student will be absent ahead of time for any reason, a Academy%20Pre-arranged%20Absence%20Form.docx must be completed and returned to the Academy office as soon as possible.
After the 2nd day following an absence, if the Academy office has not received a written or verbal explanation from a parent or guardian, the absence becomes unexcused.
