• Please take a moment to review the Henry County Parent/Student Handbook which highlights the county's attendance policy.

    In the event that your child experiences vomiting, diarrhea or fever, please allow them to remain at home.  They may return to school when they are symptom-free for 24 hours without medication.


    When your child returns to school, please provide a note for the front office with the following information (even if you sent your child's teacher an email):
    1.  Your child's name
    2.  The date of the absence
    3.  The reason for the absence
    4.  Parent signature & contact number
    A medical excuse from a doctor or dentist's office. 
    When notes are provided, your child's absence will be excused for the day(s).  Otherwise, your student's attendance record will be documented with an unexcused absence.  Students with three or more absences will receive a letter indicating the accumulation of unexcused days.   
    For assistance with attendance, please contact your school counselors.
