Student Attendance

Going to school every day is the single  most important part of your child's education.  Students learn new things at school every day.  Missing school puts your child behind.

Dickenson County Public Schools wants all of our students to get a great education.  The building blocks for that great education begins with students coming to school each and every day.

Parents and guardians are required to ensure their child attends school and to provide an explanation for their child's absence from school, and the principal must record in writing the reason given by the parent. The principal must be able to determine from the records if the excuse given was reasonable in terms of the parent meeting their legal obligations.

Please call your child's school or view the Student Attendance Policy for more information.
