A Note from Nurse Brian


Attendance Procedures

  • Attendance Phone Number: 720-747-3995
    all-day absence or late arrival

    Attendance Phone Number: 720-747-3996
    early release

    Attendance Phone Number: 720-747-3997

    For the protection of students and the accurate monitoring of attendance, please follow the procedures below. 

    1. Call the Attendance Office within 48 hours the day of the absence. When calling, please leave: 
      • Student’s name, spelling the last name 
      • Reason for absence 
      • Grade 
      • Phone number where you can be reached. Please inform us of changes in home or work phone numbers.
    2. If your student needs to be dismissed early from class, have him/her bring a signed note to the Attendance Office prior to the start of the school day. This will help to reduce disruptions into the classroom. Students who leave campus without following the above procedure may not be marked "excused".
    3. In the event that a student becomes ill at school and needs to go home, he or she must either:
      • Report to the clinic. The nurse will phone a parent/guardian and obtain permission.
      • Have a parent/guardian call and give permission to the main office at the time the student is leaving.
    4. Absences that are not excused within 48 hours will require Dean’s approval for changing absence to "excused."
    5. In the event of a situation in which the student is supervised temporarily by an adult other than the parents, the parent should notify the attendance office in writing, providing the name, address and phone number of the supervising adult. Otherwise, the student will only be released to an adult who is listed as an emergency contact. 

    Our computerized parent notification system will call your home after every class period in which your student is marked unexcused. A call to the Attendance Office to excuse the absence on the day of the absence will prevent the computer from calling you. We appreciate your help in following these procedures. If you have any questions, feel free to call the Attendance Office or your student’s Dean.




  • Dear Overland Community,


    In an effort to be more efficient, Overland High School has updated the manner in which parents and guardians report student absences.  Overland High School will no longer be taking live attendance calls. Instead, we are asking the Overland community to leave detailed voicemails that include the student’s first and last name, their grade level, as well as the date/s of their absence.  To accommodate this change, 720.747.3896 will no longer serve as Overland’s attendance phone number..  Moving forward, please use one of three options listed below.  Note, though we will try to address all voicemails in a timely manner, please allow 48 hours for your Overland student’s attendance to be updated. 


    Full day absence or late arrival: 720.747.3995

    Early Dismissal (ONLY): 720.747.3996

    Spanish attendance line: 720.747.3997 


    If you need to retrieve an Overland student from class, during the school day, please call 720.747.3996.
