It's official! We have moved to our new District website, now located at acpsd.net. Please take a moment to visit and explore our new online home for updated information on all items related to Aiken County Public Schools.
 
As a reminder, our individual school web pages will continue to link back to School Fusion (hosted at this site) until the start of the new school year when all school-related pages will make the transition to our new web platform.

Midland Valley High School is committed to the success of our students.  A good attendance record is an important key to that success.  Please review the information listed below. You may refer to the MV student handbook for complete attendance & tardy polices.   If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. 
 
  1. All students will need to turn in a parent or doctor’s note for ANY & ALL absences.   Students will be expected to turn in the appropriate note to the attendance office within (5) five working days upon returning to school.   If a student fails to provide a note within this time, the absence will be considered “unlawful”.
 
  1. A doctor’s statement will be required after a student accumulates (10) ten absences that have been excused with a parental note.
 
  1. Students are required by state law to attend a yearly class a minimum of 170 days and a semester class a minimum of 85 days.  Therefore, if a student exceeds 10 absences in a yearly class or 5 absences in a semester class they may be denied credit for that class. 
 
  1. TRUANCY :  If a student is absent for (3) three consecutive days or (5) days total and a parent or doctor’s note is not provided within (5) five working days upon return to school, the student will be deemed “Truant”.  The student will be referred to the district attendance office.  An Intervention Conference will be set up with the parent/guardian, student and school personnel to develop a plan to reduce future absences.  The Attendance Office & the District Attendance Supervisor will continue to monitor the student’s attendance record.  If the student continues to have “unlawful” absences additional interventions will be required.
 
  1. Tardies to School:  Any student who is not in their 1st period class by 8:05 a.m. will be considered “tardy” to school.  Students who are tardy to school must come by the attendance office to “sign in” and receive a pass to class. Excessive tardies will result in a discipline referral.  You can find more information about the tardy policy in the Midland Valley Student Handbook. 
 
  1.  It is important that the information listed on the school registration form is correct and up to date.  A parent or guardian must come into the main office to make any changes to your personal information.
 
  1. High School attendance is recorded on a class by class basis. Absences resulting from early sign outs are counted against the number allowed in each class.  Students must be present at least half of the period to be counted present.
