LVA Attendance

Longview Virtual Academy provides online curriculum aligned to State and local standards in a self-disciplined and independent style of learning. Not all students will find success with online learning and along with you, Longview Virtual, may need to evaluate if online learning is the right choice for your academic goals.

A lack of computer or internet access needs to be phoned into Longview Virtual. Access to technology is a family's responsibility and lack thereof prevents positive attendance and academic progress. Contacting Longview Virtual will give us a chance to offer help.


If your student is absent, please fill out our absence form. 

Parent Guide

Student attendance is the law.

RCW 28A.225.010 Compulsory School Attendance: Parents of any child 8 years of age and under 18 years of age in the State of Washington shall cause such child to attend school and such child shall have the responsibility to and therefore shall attend for the full school session.

RCW 28A.225.030: School districts are required to file a petition with the juvenile court for attendance violations by a parent or child.

The legislators, school districts and courts share the common goal of requiring students to attend school on a regular, full-time basis without acquiring unexcused absences.

Improving school attendance increases the likelihood that children will be successful in school.  Also, improved attendance decreases problems related to inappropriate social behavior such as gang activity, vandalism, burglary, and drug/alcohol abuse.

Longview School District regulations and Longview Virtual Academy policy require a child’s parent/guardian to either fill out the form below, call the school attendance office at 360.577.2702, or send a note explaining the reason for a child’s absence.  The attendance office will determine whether the absence is excused or not.
