Attendance Secretary: Allison Martinez
To comply with Virginia State Law (§ 22.1-254), students are expected to attend school every day and be on time unless there is illness or death in the immediate family. Doctor, dental or personal appointments should be made on days off, half days or after school hours when possible. Parent/Guardians are responsible for providing the school with a note (within 24 hours) indicating the reason(s) for the absence. Legitimate reasons for absences are: illness, death in immediate family, doctor or dental appointment (not possible to be scheduled on non-school time), exceptional circumstances as determined by the building principal. For any other reason, the absence is unexcused. The full YCSD attendance policy is available on the division website.
To comply with Virginia State Law (§ 22.1-258), the school will attempt to telephone a student's home to verify absences. Parents are encouraged to notify the school when a student is absent or tardy.
York High School would like to stress that parents need send in the absence notes within 24 hours of the students absence. Also that it is VERY IMPORTANT that their children come to school on time and sign out before they leave. To help facilitate communication I will also accept accept e-mails for notes and my phone is 898-0406.
