Email SHS Attendance

(540) 289-3100

The email address above may be used for all communication with the school about attendance: to verify absences and tardies, to send doctor’s notes, and to request early dismissals. Contact with school via handwritten notes or phone calls are also acceptable to verify absences.

  • School attendance in Virginia is compulsory and supports your child’s goal of academic success and on-time graduation.

  • Students should miss no more than 9 days of school each year to stay engaged, successful and on track to graduation. Students who are chronically absent (18 days or more per year, or an average of 2 days absent per month) are less likely to experience academic success.

  • Please email Anneke Martin, Assistant Principal, if you have questions or concerns about your child’s attendance, or are in need of support in regard to attendance concerns.
