    Attendance Policy for Students in Plan A

    If a student is in Plan A and does not physically attend, the student should be marked absent per WCPSS Board Policy 4400.

    The absence will be marked absent-excused if a note is provided to the attendance office within two days for one of the following reasons:

    • illness or injury
    • a death in the family
    • health care appointments
    • court appearances
    • religious observance
    • natural disasters
    • outside educational opportunities

    If a student in Plan A requires quarantining due to a positive diagnosis for COVID-19 or exposure, the student should be marked absent-excused, similar to a student who is absent for any of the reasons in section C of Policy 4400.

    Any students who are absent will continue to have access to remote learning.  Teachers will continue providing updates and assignments in Canvas.

    During Remote Learning Days, including inclement weather days, students in Plan A who are present will be marked 1R (present off-site) if:

    • a student completes their daily assignments, either online or offline; and/or if a student is present in synchronous instruction.
    • a student has a daily check-in, a two-way communication, with the appropriate teacher(s)


    SENIORS!  Graduation Information
