Attendance & Tardiness Policy

Attendance is highly valued at Bill Roberts. Since students’ learning and success is dependent on being in school, we ask families to ensure their child is present each and every day.  

Excusing an Absence 

Parents and guardians must call the Attendance Office 720-424-2649  within 48 hours to excuse an absence.  Although these absences are excused, they still count against your student’s attendance record. 

Excused absences include:

Note: All other absences are considered unexcused.

Students who have four or more absences or tardies in a single month, or ten or more absences/tardies in a school year, are considered to be “habitually truant” under state law. Each month the school reviews student attendance and tardies and will contact parents/guardians where attendance is a concern.
