Homebound Instruction—

PLEASE FAX ALL HOMEBOUND PAPERWORK
FOR STUDENTS IN LIBERTY ZONE TO
540-586-7720

Homebound instruction is available to students who are confined at home or in a health care facility for periods that would prevent normal school attendance and are substantiated by a licensed physician or licensed clinical psychologist. The term “confined at home or in a health care facility” means the student is unable to participate in the normal day-to-day activities typically expected during school attendance: and absences from home are infrequent, or relatively short duration or to receive health care treatment.

Homebound instruction is a short-term solution to keep students from falling behind while confined at home or in a health care facility. For this reason, Homebound Instruction is approved for a maximum of 9 weeks once the appropriate paperwork is received from parent/guardian, student, and physician/psychologist.  An extension may be granted with medical endorsement and a documented plan of how to intergrade the student back into the school community.

If you have questions regarding Homebound Instruction, please feel free to contact the School Social Worker in your school zone.
