It is imperative that parents understand the importance of regular, on-time attendance to school. As demonstrated by the recent COVID-19 closures, absences from school have a tremendous impact on student learning and achievement. In an effort to help every student meet with success, we want to take a moment to remind parents of the attendance policies and regulations for Isle of Wight County Schools. It is especially important to note the expectations for student attendance as it relates to student retention and course credit.
High school students may not be granted credit for a course if unexcused absences from class total more than five (5) class periods for a semester course, or ten (10) class periods for year-long courses.
The entire policy JED and regulation JED-R may be found on the division's website by clicking: Board → Policy → J. Students → JED and/or JED-R. Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s school if you have questions or concerns regarding student attendance.
Students with more than five unexcused absences during a semester will need to apply for an attendance appeal with administration.
Attendance & Tardies
When a note is not submitted, the absence will be considered unexcused. We accept 5 parent notes per semester. Please submit doctor's notes or other professional notes to excuse a student if the absence is due to an appointment. School personnel will implement the following steps to improve attendance:
· 1st and 2nd - AUTOMATED CALL home is made
· 3rd - CALL home is made
· 4th - LETTER is sent home
· 5th - ATTENDANCE IMPROVEMENT PLAN is developed
· 6th and 7th - ADMIN schedules a meeting to take place no later than 10 days after the 7th absence
· 8th and 9th - ADMIN calls home to discuss the additional absences following the ATTENDANCE IMPROVEMENT PLAN and the CONSEQUENCES if absences continue to accrue
· 10th - AUTOMATED CALL home is made
· 11th - TRUANCY REFERRAL of the student and family to the Attendance Officer
Tardies: The tardy policy applies to each block. Students are allowed to provide notes for tardies to school ONLY on the same day as the tardy and with reasonable and appropriate excuses.
3 Unexcused = AUTOMATED CALL home
6 Unexcused = 2 days LUNCH DETENTION or AFTER SCHOOL DETENTION &
possible suspension of parking privileges for 5 days
9 Unexcused = 4 days LUNCH DETENTION or AFTER SCHOOL DETENTION &
possible suspension of parking privileges for 10 days

WHS Student Handbook 2023-2024:
In conjunction with the Isle of Wight County Schools Strategic Plan, the division supports a recognition program that is open to any member of the Windsor High School community. Staff, teachers, students, volunteers, parents, and community members can all be nominated for a monthly WHS ISLE award.
The award focuses on the four broad areas of the Strategic Plan: Inspire, Succeed, Lead, Empower. The first letter of each word spells ISLE. When read together, the sound you hear is “I’ll Inspire” or “I’ll Succeed”, giving everyone ownership of the key actions throughout the plan.
Across WHS, people are demonstrating acts of inspiration, success, leadership, and empowerment. The ISLE award welcomes nominations that demonstrate how someone in the WHS community has embodied one of these areas.
From October through June, four nominees will be selected for recognition--one in each category-- and will be highlighted on our social media pages, website, and newsletters for our school and for IWCS.
Thank you for taking time to nominate someone for a Windsor High ISLE Award.
