Absences must be communicated in writing.  (No phone calls, please.)  Simply complete this Attendance Form.  When a student is absent five consecutive days a doctor’s note is also required.


    Thank you for communicating absences, particularly multiple days absences, in advance whenever possible.  However, please note that families will continue to receive the AACPS-automated absence call(s) for unexcused absences, such as travel.  More information about excused/unexcused absences can be found here.




    Folger is happy to introduce a new, contact-less way to check your student in for late arrivals and out for early dismissals.  A smartphone may be used to quickly scan the QR code (at the main entrance), complete the form that becomes available and then you and your student are all set for late arrival and/or early dismissal.  It's that simple!
