Please report absences within 48 hours of the day of absence and include the blocks or days missed. After 48 hours, the absences will be recorded as unexcused per district policy.

To excuse an absence or tardy:
When a student is absent or tardy, a parent/guardian should call the attendance line (720-494-3931) or Email: [email protected] to notify the school. When leaving a message, please spell your student’s last name, leave a contact number, a reason and date for the absences or tardies that should be excused.

When a student needs to leave school early, please call a few hours ahead so that we have time to send them their pass to leave class. Your student will come to the front office and sign out and then meet you outside. Upon their return, they should sign back in.

If you know in advance that your student will be missing 3 days or more of school, please have them fill out a Prearranged Absence Form and have it signed by each teacher. You may turn it in to the Attendance Office at least 2 days prior to the absence.

***If your student was marked absent from a class that you believe was a mistake, you need to email that specific teacher to inquire about it.
Thanks in advance for your support and help in having your students be prompt in
arriving to each class.
