Attendance is recorded at 8:55 a.m. Students who are not in their classroom by 8:55 a.m. will be considered tardy. If your child will be absent or tardy, please let the school know using any of the following options:
- Call the attendance line at 703-912-4444
- Email: WestS[email protected]
- Complete the online attendance form linked at the bottom of this page
All three options are available 24 hours. This is a critical safety precaution for your child. You will be contacted by an automated system using the information listed on your child’s Emergency Care Form if you haven’t notified the school by 9:30 a.m. of an absent or tardy.
An excused tardy or absence includes illness, death in family, doctor or dentist appointment, and observance of a religious holiday. We encourage family trips during scheduled school vacations and strongly discourage such trips during the school year. Virginia law requires us to withdraw any student from our enrollment who is absent from school for 15 consecutive days or more. Upon the student’s return, a parent must officially enroll him or her again. It is critical to your child’s success that they are in school daily and on time.
