Discipline and Attendance

What will happen with students who refuse to wear masks? How will rules such as wearing a face mask be enforced?

Students who attend school face-to-face have agreed to wear a mask. Alternative options at the online school will be available for students who choose not to comply with school rules/expectations.

Will attendance requirements be adjusted so that students will not be penalized for not attending school everyday?

Attendance will be counted following the Code of Virginia. If a student is absent because of illness, the parent needs to contact the school within three days in order for the absence to be counted as excused. If the student is absent for a more extended period of time due to illness, a professional note will be required. If the parent has any questions about attendance, he/she should contact the school administrator to discuss the attendance issue and seek guidance.

If a child tests positive for covid-19 and misses school due to having the virus, will absences be excused if ten days is exceeded?

Yes. The absence would be excused and an attendance waiver applied for medical hardship as long as the parent notifies the school of the absence, provides a doctor's note and the student earns a passing grade in the course.
