Regular attendance is important for a child to maintain academic growth and learning. Colorado law requires that all school-age children regularly attend school. At the same time, a sick child cannot learn well and may be contagious to his/her classmates. Please be considerate of others and keep your child home when he or she is ill. Please call the attendance line at 384-5806 by 9:00am if your child will be absent. The school office will attempt to call the parents of all absent students. This is to help ensure students safety and does not eliminate the need for a parent to call the office. Parents will be contacted in the event of excessive tardiness or absences.
Missed schoolwork may be picked up when the child returns, or after school to avoid interrupting class. Please refer to Roaring Fork School District Student Information Packet for a complete explanation of the attendance policy and excused/unexcused absences.
