Prince George's County Public Schools will observe the national “Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day” event on Thursday, April 25, 2013.
PGCPS Attendance Procedures
To maintain accurate student attendance, all students accompanying their parents to work must observe the following procedures:
- If you plan to have your child accompany you to work, you must notify your child’s school PRIOR to Thursday, April 26th.
- Students are responsible for obtaining any schoolwork that they will miss. All schoolwork must be completed in accordance with the teacher’s directions.
- When your child returns to school, she or he must bring a letter on your company letterhead stating that she or he accompanied you to work. As is the case for ALL absences, the school must receive this letter within 72 hours of your child’s return to school.
- For attendance purposes, the day will be counted as an excused absence; however, if the above procedures are not followed, the day will be counted as an unexcused absence. As a reminder, an excused or unexcused absence will affect your child’s perfect attendance record.
