Please call the attendance line at 703-212-5192 regarding any absences. A phone call must be made and email is not permitted. Parents or guardians will be called if Michele Fracasso, Attendance Coordinator, has not been notified of a student’s absence and/or late arrival.
If a student is absent for any reason, he or she must present a valid note from his or her parent or guardian to the Attendance Coordinator on the day he or she returns to school if the note was not received prior to his or her absence.
Requests for extended absences (three or more consecutive days) require an “Extended Absence Request” form which can be obtained from Mrs. Fracasso or found here. This form must be submitted to the Principal for approval.
Bishop Ireton High School follows Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) with regard to a delayed opening, early closure, or cancellation of school due to inclement weather. In the event of any other decision, the school will notify the following broadcast outlets of our intentions: WUSA-TV (Channel 9), WRC-TV (Channel 4), WJLA-TV (Channel 7), WTTG-TV (Channel 5), and WTOP AM/FM. An email notification will be sent to parents and a message will be placed on Bishop Ireton's website.
During a two-hour delay, doors open for students at 8:55am, the first bell is at 9:40am, and 1st period begins at 9:55am. When a delayed opening is announced during examinations, the published examination schedule will be delayed two hours (i.e., examinations scheduled for 8:00am will be given at 10:00am). If school is cancelled during examinations, the examinations scheduled for the cancelled day will be administered on the next school day. If school is dismissed early or cancelled, all co-curricular activities (sports, rehearsals, etc.) are alsocancelled.
