    Arriving at School

    Sch​ool begins promptly at 8:15 a.m. Playground supervision begins at 8:00 a.m. each morning. For the safety of your child, please do not allow children to arrive at school prior to 8:00 a.m. When students arrive in the morning, they should wait outside in their grade level's designated area, dressed appropriately for the weather. The only students who may enter the building before the bell rings are those going to breakfast (served from 8:00 a.m. - 8:15 a.m. everyday). Breakfast eaters must remain in the cafeteria until the 8:15 a.m. bell rings.

    During severe weather, when school is in session, students can enter the building upon arrival and go directly to their classrooms or breakfast.​​ ​ 

    ​Attendance Procedures

    Regular attendance is an essential part of a student’s education. Students are expected to be in attendance every school day as required by Colorado state law and district policy.

    If your child is absent, please notify the school office by 8:15 a.m. Notification can be done by leaving a message on the 24-hour attendance line (720-561-2602) or reporting an absence​ via our website.​

    Pre-Arranged Absence Form

    Parents are required to fill out a Pre-Arranged Absence Form for any planned absence longer than three (3) days. The form should be submitted to the office for approval PRIOR to the absence. Forms are available in the office.

    Tardy Policy

    ​The tone of each day is set during the first few minutes of class and an important portion of the daily lesson is presented during this same precious time. We urge you to stress the importance of regular, prompt attendance and appreciate parent/guardian support in this matter as all students benefit from a timely start.
