Attendance Policy

Students are expected to be present and engaged in learning each and every school day. Regular and on-time attendance is an important factor in student achievement and success. It is the obligation and responsibility of parents / guardians to ensure that every child 6 - 17 years old attends public school during each school year (C.R.S. 22-33-104).

Attendance letters will be sent when your student has 5 days, 10 days and 15 days of absences. If your student accrues 15 excused absences, future absences will be automatically unexcused without a doctor's note.

Excused Absences

Students may miss school for illness or injury, pre-arranged absences that cannot be taken care of outside school hours, work-study programs, or a school-sponsored activity. Please call 970-686-8505 to let the school know of your child’s absence.

Unexcused Absences

A student with five or more unexcused absences from school in any one month or 10 unexcused absences during any school year will be considered “habitually truant.” We will notify the parents / guardians in writing of the absences, and, in partnership with parents / guardians, will develop a plan to address attendance issues and discuss consequences for further unexcused absences.

Attendance Phone Number

Our 24 hour attendance phone number is 970-686-8505. You may call this at anytime of the day or night. It will go straight to a voicemail box which we pick up in the morning.
