Attendance Phone Number: 720-554-2242
For the safety of students and the accurate monitoring of attendance, please follow the procedures below.
When calling the attendance line, please leave a VOICE MAIL message with your student’s name, SPELLING LAST NAME, your name and phone number, the date and times of the absence, and the reason your student is missing class.
1.) Absences cannot be excused without a specific date and specific class period given.
2.) Errors: If you believe your student was marked tardy or absent in error, your student should communicate directly with their teacher to clear up any discrepancy. If any correction needs to be made, your student's teacher will email the attendance office with any correction needed. Due to call volume, the attendance office cannot contact your student's teacher for you.
3.) Class periods identified as 9th, 10th or 11th period in PowerSchool: Certain academic support, teacher assist and other classes may be listed as 9th or 10th period in PowerSchool. Advisory is listed as 11th period and meets between 2nd and 3rd period only on Mondays and Wednesdays.
Our computerized parent notification system will contact you twice a day to inform you of unexcused absences. Messages on the attendance line are reviewed daily and every effort is made to update PowerSchool in a timely manner, however changes may take up to 24 hours to reflect in our student’s record. If you receive a call or email from attendance and have already left a message, please disregard the automated message.
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.
Early Dismissal Procedures
If your student needs to leave class before the end of the period, please provide a signed parent note for your student to give to the teacher at the beginning of the class period. Please call the attendance line to excuse your student from those periods. If you are calling with less than one hour notice of the required early dismissal, contact your student's dean for assistance. The dean's office can send a note to the class to notify the teacher to release the student. Due to the size of our campus, requests to release a student from class cannot always be accommodated on short notice – we may not have someone available to deliver the notification in a timely manner.
If your student is late to school due to the bus being late, you must call the attendance line to have the tardy excused. The reason this is required is because although your student may be a scheduled bus rider, we do not have any way to verify that this is the way your student is getting to school. Tardies cannot be excused automatically. For questions or concerns regarding your student's bus being consistently late, please contact district Transportation at 720-554-4664, Option 2 between the hours of 5:30am-6:00pm.
