    Attendance Secretary



    What to do if your son or daughter has been absent:
    A note with the student's full name and signed by the parent or guardian, stating a valid reason for the absence, must be presented to the attendance office the day following an absence.

    How does a student get the class work missed while out sick?Make-up work is the responsibility of the student. Students are expected to ask their teachers for work they missed and to complete it as directed by the teacher. Counselors may be contacted to obtain assignments if the student has an absence of three or more days.

    Can a student get an early dismissal from school? Yes, requests for early dismissal must include the time, reason, and parent's telephone number; must be signed by the parent or guardian; and must be brought to the attendance office prior to the beginning of classes. Students must sign out in the attendance office at the time of early dismissal. Failure to do so will result in an unexcused absence from any classes missed.

    You may contact the attendance secretary, at 898-0543 or ghsattendance@ycsd.york.va.us
