Dominion Attendance Procedures
The first and most important step that a student must take to ensure success is to attend school each and every day. If a student develops regular attendance habits, we are confident that she/he will find success at Dominion High School. If, however, a student is absent more than 10% of the days that school, or any specific class, is in session, that student will risk loss of credit for the course, regardless of the grade earned.
The Loudoun County School Board has established that the following reasons, accompanied with appropriate documentation, will be labeled as excused absences:
- Personal illness
- Death in the family
- Medical or dental appointments
- Court appearances
- Religious holidays
- Illness in the immediate family
- Emergencies that are approved by the principal
- Trips or activities that enhance or extend the student’s education, when approved by the principal in advance.
