Attendance Information

Student attending class online with a laptop

At Hanover County Online School, we adhere to HCPS Policies and Regulations regarding attendance.

We expect all students to attend all virtual instruction sessions. The following are some of the specifics about attendance:

  • We keep track of student attendance through PowerSchool.
  • We record secondary school attendance by the block.
  • We take elementary school attendance daily.
  • Students must be present for more than 50% of their virtual block or day for it to be counted as “present” in PowerSchool.

Recognizing the challenging and unique circumstances in which we are living, the leadership, faculty, and staff of Online School works with families to navigate school attendance requirements.

Please see our parent/student handbook for additional attendance information.
