Please call the following numbers to report student's absence from school:
Valley High School's attendance policy is similar to those of the comprehensive high schools. Absence for a court or medical appointment is excused when proper documentation is brought to the school office, verifying the date of the appointment/absence. All other absences are unexcused. A phone call (720-4181 or 720-4374) or note may be brought to the school office, which must indicate the date of absence and must be signed by a parent/guardian. Students who are absent 1 or more periods during the day will be placed on an automated absence list, which will automatically call the student's residence, informing the parent/guardian of their child's absence.
Because good attendance practices are closely related to academic achievement and success, Valley High School requires that all students attend school at a 90% rate. It is ultimately the responsibility of the student and their parents/'guardians to ensure that good attendance procedures are followed, however, it is our desire that parents/guardians work collaboratively and cooperatively with the Principal's office regarding their child. Parents/guardians are also encouraged to request their student's attendance printouts from the front office.
