If your student will be absent, please complete this form, or call the attendance line at 720-561-4002. Please note: we may not excuse students for a single period without documentation per BVSD Board Policy. Thank you.
The School Messenger system requires absences
to be recorded by 9:15. If we have not received a phone call regarding
your student’s absence or tardy by 9:00, you may receive an automated
call and/or e-mail. Calling the absence in will help us maintain a safe
environment for your student here at Monarch K-8 School. We believe that
this policy would help in finding your student in a timely manner if
they should not arrive at school for any reason.
If your student is absent due to an appointment for any or all of the
day, please have them bring a note, from the appointment, to the office
when they return.
Request for Prearranged Absence:
Elementary - If your student is going to be out for an extended time (three or more days), please send a note or call the office and then get any homework from the classroom teacher.Monarch K8 Vacation Policy
Middle Level - If your student will be missing more than two days of school, a parent or guardian must send a note with student one week prior to absence (note to be turned in to the front office) and fill out the Pre-Arranged Absence Form. The student must understand that she/he is responsible for all assignments missed. Students should make arrangements with their teachers in advance regarding their make-up work. All make-up work is due one week from the date of return to school. As a way to help your child complete all work , we ask that the parent initial the student's pre-arranged absence form as each assignment is completed. As each assignment is turned in, teachers will initial that they have received the assignment.
Please call as early as possible.
