     Attendance & Arrival At School

    ​School begins promptly at 8:00 a.m. Students can enter the school starting at 7:55 a.m.  The front door and back door (for bussed students) are opened at this time.  During severe weather, when school is in session, children will be admitted to the cafeteria or the PIT upon arrival and supervised until the bell rings.​​   

    Children may begin arriving at school 7:50 a.m.  Early arrival, prior to 7:50 a.m., is discouraged except in unusual circumstances, in which case special arrangements for supervision must be made with the principal or teacher prior to the child’s arrival. There is no adult supervision of students before 7:50 a.m. or after 2:40 p.m.

    Tardy Policy

    Students arriving after 8:00 are considered tardy.  Please help your student arrive at school on time, as late students disrupt the learning environment.  Please view the Student/Parent Handbook-Attendance Section for more details and information.

    Attendance Procedures

    ​Regular attendance is an essential part of a student’s education.  Students are expected to be in attendance every school day as required by Colorado state law and district policy.

    If your student is absent, please notify the school office by 8:00 a.m.  Notification can be done by leaving a message on the 24-hour attendance line (720-561-5276) or filling out the Online Absence Form. 
    Please view the Student/Parent Handbook-Attendance Section for more details and information including the definition of excused and unexcused absences.
