    Updated Attendance Expectations for Students

    Student success is attributed to regular and punctual attendance. Frequent absences may lead to poor academic performance and possible academic failure. Students and parents agree to be absent no more than 10 days in a school year. Students who have more than 10 unexcused absences may be placed on a truancy plan and/or removed from the Virtual Academy.  Communication of reason for absence is required for every absence. Parents or guardians MUST call 303-657-3852 to report a reason for every student's absence within 48 hours.  Emails will not be accepted.  All absences will be marked as unexcused without a parent phone call.  Principal reserves the right to determine if the absence is excused or unexcused regardless of phone call to the main office.  Students are responsible for completing all work missed due to an absence.  Work returned in a timely manner is expected. 

    As we are using a blended model of asynchronous and synchronous learning, attendance will be determined by the student logging into Buzz and/or the student attending their synchronous classes each day. Students that do not log into Buzz or attend a Zoom class will be marked unexcused absent for the day.  Daily synchronous class times can be found on our website at WestminsterPublicSchools.org/WVA.  Due to our reporting limitations, our daily attendance window will be from 12:00 AM through 11:59 PM and will be recorded into Infinite Campus one day in arrears. 

    Students may be removed from Westminster Virtual Academy and enrolled back in their neighborhood school for lack of attendance. This may include lack of completed assignments, lack of progress, failure to communicate, failure to attend Zoom classes, failure to log in to Buzz, or a combination of any of the above.
