Attendance/Arrival/Dismissal from School


    Before and After School Policy
    Parents are asked to please call the Attendance Line  at (720) 561-4502 by 8:00 a.m.  or via the Report Absence Link on this Website if a child will be late or absent. You may call in the evening and leave a message if you know your child will miss the following day at school. Please leave students name, grade, teacher, your name, phone number, date(s) of absence/tardy and the reason.
    If the school has not received appropriate contact from a parent or guardian excusing a student's absence and the school can not determine the safety of a child, the School Principal or the School Resource Officer may be dispatched to the student's home to verify the safety of the student.
    If absences and tardies become excessive, a letter will be sent home from the Principal. If the issue can not be resolved, the Truancy Officer will be notified.
    School starts at 8:00AM. Please ensure your student arrives at school and lines up with their class on the Playground before the bell rings at 8:00AM.
    Arrival at School
    For a student's safety, they are not to arrive at school until 7:50AM when playground supervision is provided. If a parent would like their student to arrive early, they must accompany them on the playground until supervision arrives.
    If their is inclement weather and we will be lining up inside, the school will post a sign at the front entry way notifying that line-up will take place inside. Due to space restrictions, students only will be allowed into the building at that time and will be supervised by staff.
    Parents and students should not enter the building before school unless requested by a teacher or other staff member. Teachers are preparing for their day and require this time to complete their tasks and meetings.
    Early Dismissals/Dismissal
    Parents who need to have a child dismissed early or excused from school for a brief period of time should arrive at school and inform the Office Staff of the student who needs to be released, and sign the student out. The staff member will retrieve the student. Please ensure enough time is allocated as students may not always be in their classroom. We do not accept callls requesting that a student be called down at a specific time. 
    After school arrangements need to be made prior to the beginning of school. Students are not allowed to use the school phones to make play dates. It is not always possible to get a message to a classroom during the last minutes of the please communicate after school plans with your student before they leave for the day. We understand that emergencies come up and we will try to help when that happens.
    Guest Students Riding the School Bus
    If your student is not a normal bus rider but plans on riding the bus for a play date with another student, the parent of the guest student must write a note with the both of the students name giving their permission to ride the bus. Include the date of the ride. The student must bring the note to the Office and have a staff member sign the note and the student must then hand the note to the bus driver.
