The attendance office needs to be notified of ALL absences. If we don’t receive an attendance email or phone call, your student will be marked Unexcused for that day. If your student is going to miss class because of an appointment, please remember to bring documentation stating where your child was. Per BVSD policy we cannot excuse single period absences without documentation. Excused absences are only for things like:
Temporary illness or injury
Doctor or dentist appointments with documentation
Absences which are approved by a building administrator on a pre-arranged basis (these include special family activities, sports team travel or extenuating circumstances)
Please call 720-561-8002 or use the directions below to report an absence.
As a reminder, BVSD's illness protocol is as follows:
If your student is experiencing any of the following symptoms they must stay home:
|Major Symptoms||Minor Symptoms|
If a student has a fever, cough, loss of taste or smell, or chills (major symptoms) that last longer than 24 hrs they must remain at home and have a negative PCR COVID test to return to school or they will need to stay home for 10 days.
If a student has any other COVID-like symptoms (minor symptoms) that last longer than 48 hrs they must remain at home and have a negative PCR COVID test to return to school or they will need to stay home for 10 days.
Testing is available through BVSD and COVID Check Colorado throughout the district - see the schedule here.
If your child has been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID within the last 10 days please contact your school to determine if they need to quarantine at home and/or need a COVID test to return.
If you have questions about returning to school after an illness, please contact our school's health office.
Parents and guardians can log in to their Infinite Campus Parent Portal site to notify School staff of an expected student absence. This will ensure the authenticity of reported absences, while also providing families with improved communication when a student misses class.
See below for a step-by-step guide that can help you through the process.
The BVSD Report Absence Form allows parents and guardians to securely report a student’s absence from school for a single day. Users submitting an absence report will receive a confirmation email at the contact email address listed in Infinite Campus. The form can be toggled between English and Spanish. Confirmation emails will be sent in English or Spanish depending on the preferred language of the user listed in Infinite Campus.
Students are not able to self-report absences from Campus Student.
