When your child is absent from school, in order for the absence to be excused we need a parent to inform the school office by 9:00 a.m. We know it can be difficult to get through in the morning, so feel free to call and leave a message, or send an email to the Absentee Notification address.
If you know that your student will be out for multiple days, please call so that a prearranged absence notification can be sent to the team. We need to know on a daily basis where your child is. It is much quicker verifying where a student might be if parents call the school office. We appreciate your help.
If you decide that your child must miss school, please email our Attendance Clerk or call 719-234-3040 at least four (4) days prior to the absence to arrange for a pre-arranged absence notification to be sent to the team of teachers. Your child is responsible for obtaining all assignments and completing all missed work. Deadlines for makeup work are determined at each school site. The school administration has the discretion to not approve a pre-arranged absence if the length of the absence causes the child to miss too much school. If you have any questions, please call the main office at 719-234-3000.
