To be considered for homebound instruction, students must anticipate or have a minimum of 10 consecutive absences (elementary and middle school) or 5 consecutive absences (high school) due to illness, accident, or pregnancy. The student, parent, or guardian should contact the school counselor within the first few days of being absent to inquire about medical homebound services. Prior to being approved for medical homebound services, the student is still responsible for obtaining make up work from his/her teachers while awaiting approval for instructional services. Generally speaking, students on medical homebound will receive 5 hours of instruction per week. If you have questions or need more information, contact your school counselor or Michael Shelton at (864) 403.2025.
