Daily & Excessive Absences

Daily Absence Policy

Please report all student absences online (period, partial or full day absence), at VVHS.aps.edu, using the ‘Absence – Report Online’ button found about halfway down the left side. If necessary, parents/guardians may fill out a hard copy Absence Admit in the Main Office. If your child is absent multiple days for any reason, please submit that absence information daily via the website ‘Absence – Report Online’ form. All absence reporting must be done via the website online reporting or the hard copy Absence Admit; no phone calls for absence reporting will be accepted. If there are extenuating absence circumstances that require your student to miss multiple days, please contact his/her Academy Office and work with the counselor/administrator around the situation.

Absence Admits must be submitted (online or hard copy) no later than 48 hours after the student returns to school.

Student absences may be excused for the following reasons, with appropriate documentation: illness, limited family emergencies, death in the family, medical/health/legal appointments, suspensions, religious commitment, college visit, deployment of a military parent, limited extenuating circumstances. All other absences are unexcused, including family vacations outside the normally scheduled school breaks and non-school sponsored activities or trips.

 School-related absences (Hawk Absences), with proper prior approval, do not count towards the number of absences.

Excessive absences, excused or unexcused, will be addressed with an administrator.
