Please call attendance line by 8:30 a.m. for absent students, 970-686-8605.
Students are expected to be present and engaged in learning each and every school day. Regular and on-time attendance is an important factor in student achievement and success. It is the obligation and responsibility of parents/guardians to ensure that every child 6 - 17 years old attends public school during each school year (C.R.S. 22-33-104).
Students may miss school for illness or injury, pre-arranged absences that cannot be taken care of outside school hours, work-study programs, or a school-sponsored activity. Please call 970-686-8605 to let the school know of your child’s absence.
A student with four or more unexcused absences from school in any one month or 10 unexcused absences during any school year will be considered “habitually truant.” We will notify the parents/guardians in writing of the absences, and, in partnership with parents/guardians, will develop a plan to address attendance issues and discuss consequences for further unexcused absences.
For more information on attendance, please contact our Dean of Students, Erica Jaeger at 970-686-8615
Pick-up / Drop-off Procedures
If using the main parking lot entrance, please either:
Park in the parking lot and walk your child to the front using the cross walks
Pull forward as far as possible in the lane and allow you child to exit the passenger side of the vehicle to the sidewalk.
If using the side streets, please remember to:
Direct your child to the nearest crosswalk
Have your child exit the passenger side of the vehicle
Avoid stopping on Grand in front of the entrance to the parking lot
Please role model patience to your students as we realize the traffic can back up on days when the weather is not as conducive for walking or biking. We have many families sharing the roads in front of our school and our goal is to keep everyone safe.
