Although not always possible, we encourage families and students to schedule appointments and vacations outside of the regular school day.



           If it is necessary for a student to be absent, a parent or guardian needs to contact the PVHS absentee line, 571-434-4502, as soon as possible. For your convenience, this is a 24 hour answering machine. An email can also be sent to PVHAbsentee@lcps.org.  Please include the following information:

    • student’s name
    • student's grade
    • parent’s name, relation to student
    • reason for absence
    • working contact number 

          Students who are not in class are at risk of being marked tardy or absent; those who accumulate a specific number of tardies and absences may face disciplinary action. 

     **Any extended absence for more than 5 days needs prior written approval from the principal
