Attendance - Unplanned Absence/Late (Sick or Other)

If a student is ill or will be missing school for other last minute reasons, parents are to call the school. The same is true if a student will be late to school.

The Attendance Coordinator will call parents of students who have not reported to school by mid-morning.

Students who arrive to school late must check in with the Attendance Coordinator. They will be given a pass to attend class. 

Steps for Unplanned Absence

1. Call the School Office


If the call is placed during non-office hours, the recorded message will offer an option for attendance. 

Please leave a voice message that includes...
    • Student's full name, including the spelling of the last name
    • Student's grade level
    • Parent caller’s full  name
    • Reason for the absence

The Attendance Coordinator will receive the message and record the information.

2. Send a note by email or on paper


Because FVL is required to have “hard copy” documentation, parents need to send a note the next day to the Attendance Coordinator. An email is also acceptable.
