Attendance Policies

All attendance policies can be found in the student handbook, and printed in the front of each student planner.  These policies are in accord with the Colorado School Attendance Law (C.R.S. 22-33-104).

What constitutes an excused absence?

  1. Temporary illness or injury, or an absence approved by a school administrator (doctorΚΌs appointments, field trips, prearranged absences, athletic events, etc.)
  2. Absences for an extended period of time due to physical, emotional, or mental disability
  3. In the custody of a court or law enforcement authority

If an absence does not fall into one of these categories, it will be considered unexcused.

Such things as having car trouble, sleeping late, studying, finishing assignments in the library, babysitting, or running errands are not considered legitimate reasons to miss class.

Students may not be excused by a parent for being absent from class while on campus unless they are officially checked into the Counseling Office or the Nurse’s Office.

What are the possible consequences for unexcused absences?

  • Community Service
  • Saturday School
  • Out-of-School Suspension
  • Expulsion
