Attendance Procedures

To report your child absent from school or coming in late, please contact the main office by any of these ways:

  • Calling the attendance phone line: 703-228-2910
  • Emailing dorothyhammattendance@apsva.us
  • Sending your child in with a note either before or after the absence.

When picking your child up early for an appointment, please remember to send your child to school with a note stating the time and reason for leaving early. Your student should bring the note to the main office either before or during TA for an early release pass. The pass will allow the student to leave the classroom without interrupting instruction and they will be waiting for you in the main office to be signed out.
