The LCPS attendance policy and attendance rules for John Champe discourages the absence of students for three or more consecutive days.  However, we have occurrences in life that may disrupt our work and school schedules.  If your student will need to be out of school for an extended amount of time, it will need to be approved by our principal.

    If a student will be absent for three or more consecutive days, an absence notification should be completed in ParentVue at least 5 days in advance of the absence.

    Parents will receive an email from the school staff stating whether the absences are excused or unexcused.  If the absence is not deemed excusable in accordance with the LCPS Attendance Guidelines, your student will be marked “unexcused absence” for the number of days absent.
