Students are required attend class on the days school is in session. If your child will be absent or tardy past 9:15 a.m., it is your responsibility to call the school attendance line at 719-234-5609 by 9:15 a.m. and leave the following information:
Reason for absence
Make-up work received upon a student's return to school will be given one day for every day the student was absent. For example, if a student misses school Monday and receives their work Tuesday, the make-up work will be due at the beginning of school Thursday. The student gets all of Wednesday (one day) to complete the work.
If it is necessary for you to remove your child from the building during school hours, you must come to the office and sign your child out. We will call him/her to the office.
If you know ahead of time that your child will be out of school, please be sure to pick up a Prearranged Absence Form from the office. A copy will be given to the child's teacher so that homework may be assigned. A two-day notice is requested for the teacher.
It is the student's responsibility to check with each teacher to collect make-up work due to an absence(s). Work can be given prior to an absence if a teacher has been notified at least two full days before a student is gone. Any work received by a student before an absence is due the day the student returns to school.
Students are expected to arrive at school by 8:15 a.m. If your child arrives after 8:20 a.m. , they will need to report to the office to get a tardy pass in order to be admitted to class.
Daily and quarterly records monitor attendance/tardies, which are reported on the student report card.
