BVSD Reasons for Keeping Your Student Home
Attendance Guidelines for New Vista High School
Please call in on the same day as the absence. Be sure to let us know your student’s full name, your name, the date you are calling, the date of and the reason for the absence. You can also send in a detailed note with your student, or fax the note to: 720-561-8701.
If/when your student is tardy for any reason, please have them sign in at the main office to get a pass to class. If the tardiness is to be excused, please send your student with a note to the front office or call the attendance line the same day. Please do not have the student give the note to a teacher.
Any planned absence of two school days or more must be pre-approved by completing the “Pre-arranged Absence” form. This form is available at the front office and, after completion by parents/guardians and teachers, it should be submitted for approval by the administration at least three (3) days prior to the absence. Absences beyond four (4) school days will be approved based on student academic progress.
A student must check out with the office if leaving campus for any reason, including a doctor appointment, an illness, or not attending his/her scheduled class for any reason. These absences need to be excused by a parent either in writing or by phone.
Workshops and Community Experiences
Workshops and Community Experiences take attendance and count the same as any class at NVHS. Students are responsible for notifying their CE mentor if they are going to be absent.
Auto Dialer/Email Notifications
An automated attendance phone call or email will be sent between 4:00 - 6:30 pm on the day of an unexcused absence. Please check your voice messages or emails daily and respond with your name, relationship to the student, and reason why the absence should be excused.
