You will be able to report your student(s) absent via the ParentVUE website and ParentVUE mobile app. This new feature will appear as a blue button titled “Report Absence” on the main page. This will allow parents/guardians to report absences for a single day or multiple days.
For each absence reported, parents/guardians must provide a detailed note explaining the reason. If you are reporting your student as sick, please list the symptoms your student is experiencing. The note will help school attendance staff select the correct attendance code.
When an absence is submitted, parents/guardians will initially see the reported absence code as “Unverified.” The absence verification is completed by the school attendance staff who will review the parent-submitted absence and determine whether it is excused or unexcused according to APS Attendance Policy Implementation Procedure J-5.1.30.
This is the new preferred method for families to report absences. The electronic notification will serve as the required written notice for student absences. If you have a legal or medical document, please provide it to the school attendance staff upon your student’s return to school or via email. Parents/guardians can still submit a student absence notice via your school’s attendance email email@example.com or the attendance hotline 703-228-5844.For step-by-step instructions, click here.
