Absences, Tardies and Early Dismissals


    Absence Reporting

    Report an absence, tardy or early dismissal via ParentVUE (instructions)



     To Request an Extended Absence


    Please review the following information regarding absences, tardies, and early dismissals. Even in the virtual learning environment, the attendance office needs to know these instances for accurate attendance.


    *Tardies: If a student is going to be late to school due to an appointment at the doctors, orthodontist, dentist, court, or any other reason, please notify us via Parent VUE or by emailing PFH-FAX@lcps.org. Please make sure to include a copy of medical/dental notes or any other documentation from appointments, etc. You can also send in a note with your student to excuse the tardy.

    *Absences: If a student is going to be absent from school for the day, or longer, please notify the attendance office via Parent VUE, or using the form above. If you choose to submit an absence via email, please do so by emailing PFH-FAX@lcps.org and include medical/dental notes or any other documentation, if you have it.

    *Early Dismissals: Due to COVID mitigation strategies and for the safety of all, you will be unable to come into the school building to sign out your student for early dismissals. You can however request an early dismissal via Parent VUE, sending a note in with your student to be turned in first thing in the morning, or by sending an email to PFH-FAX@lcps.org. Early dismissal requests MUST be received by 12noon on the day of the dismissal. Last minute early dismissals will not be permitted.

    *Please note: All student athletes must have a doctors note, dentist note, or other type of documentation if they are tardy to school or leave via early dismissal for them to participate in their sport the day of their tardy or early dismissal. If they are home sick for the day, they will not be allowed to participate.


    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Attendance Office at 571-434-3200 

    Thank you!
