Attendance

ATTENDANCE LINE: 303-982-5694

Safety is top priority at Meiklejohn. With this in mind, it is imperative that parents call the attendance line when their student will be absent for any reason so that we can save time when accounting for students every morning.

Please have called the attendance line before 8:30 a.m. of the day your student is/will be absent.

Pre-arranged Absences - If you know that your student will be absent for an extended amount of time, please fill out a Pre-arranged Absence form (below) and turn it into the front office.In order for the absence to be excused, the student must meet one or more of the following conditions:

  • is in good academic standing
  • has no unexcused absences
  • has four or fewer excused absences in a semester or seven or fewer in a school year

Attendance is the responsibility of the student, the parents, and the school. The importance of regular, daily attendance as a basis for academic achievement cannot be overemphasized. Absences have a negative effect upon instructional continuity, regardless of attempts to make up the work. The district believes duplication of the classroom experience can never be accomplished with after-school assignments. The school cannot teach students who are not present. The regular contact of students with one another in the classroom and their participation in a well planned instructional activity under the tutelage of a competent teacher are vital to this purpose.
