School Visitors - Door Bell Entry System
The safety of our students is always at the forefront of district planning. Therefore, we have a doorbell entry system at our school. When you visit the school you must ring the doorbell on the silver speaker box. You must identify yourself and your reason for being at our school. The office staff will be able to talk to you as well as see you on a monitor. Once the staff has identified you and verified your reason for visiting the door will be unlocked remotely. Parents are always welcome and may visit at any time. However, teachers are expected to teach and interact with their students so they cannot visit with parents. If you wish to talk with the teacher, please email them or schedule a conference.
Please call the attendance line listed above before 8:00 am to report your child's absence. The attendance lines are available 24 hours a day.
In case of illness children should stay home until:
- They are fever free (less than 100°) for 24 hours
- Vomiting and diarrhea have subsided for 12-24 hours
- Strep infections have been treated with medication for 24 hours
- d. Parents have checked with the school or their doctor regarding minor contagious illnesses.
It is very important that students arrive at school on time, between 7:45 am and 8:00 am. Students who arrive after 8:00am are considered tardy. All absences, tardies and early dismissals are recorded for documentation. When a child accumulates 10 absences or tardies, parents/guardians will receive a letter from the school.
New Attendance Policy
Cherry Creek School District will now be sending automated text, voice, and emails to all students that have not been called in with an excused absence or tardy. Our attendance line is 720-886-3495. This number must be called before 8:10 AM to avoid a text, voice, and email. Please use the attendance line for attendance issues (it is available 24 hours/day) to be sure you will not receive an automated call. If you do receive a text, voice, and email, then call 720-886-3495 to excuse your student.
No Left Turn Sign
The Arapaho County Sheriff will be monitoring and enforcing the new NO LEFT Turn sign during certain hours of the day. This is a new sign installed by the police department located across from our exit. Please read the sign to be aware of the times in which this will be enforced.
