Students who are physically unable to attend school may be eligible for homebound services. Homebound services are designed for temporary absences from school and medical documentation must be provided including the forms below.
The homebound teacher will provide assignments sent by the classroom teacher and work with the student during their visits. Homebound services may be served at the home or another safe mutually agreed upon location.
The goal of the homebound program is to provide instruction such that the child will stay caught up with assignments and learning so that they can be successful once they are able to return to the classroom environment.
Homebound services should be used as a last resort and other options should be explored such as a reduced schedule or accommodations made within the school and/or classroom.
Once the forms are completed they should be sent to Debbie Hodges, Student Support Services Director. They may be faxed to 252 514-6376 to speed up the process.

Both forms would be given to the school counselor who will submit them to the Director of Student Support Services.
