Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

Students will enter through the north double doors on Phillips as early as 7:50 am and must be in the classroom by 8:00 am. Students and teachers will exit through the east doors by the playground. Teachers will accompany and stay with students for 10 after the bell, then we take your child up to office to wait for you. Please make contact with the teacher for your child to be dismissed.

Attendance

1.    It is the parent’s responsibility to notify the school attendance line, 720-972-6610 any time a student is absent from school.   Please do so by 7:50 a.m.  This policy is necessary to account for and ensure the safety and well-being of each student.

2.    Parents may excuse up to 5 absences per semester. Any additional absences will require a doctor’s note or court documentation to be considered excused. At 5 absences, an attendance letter will be sent home signed by the teacher. At 10 absences, an attendance meeting will be scheduled and a contract will be put into place. Any additional absences will result in a District referral.

3.    Parents of students who have previously been cited for excessive absenteeism will receive a second written notification and will be encouraged to meet with the building administrative team.

4.    The school will follow the same procedures for children who exhibit a pattern of absenteeism (ex., every Friday or excessive tardies).

5.    We strongly encourage you to schedule vacations in conjunction with the school calendar.  Please be advised that school absences accrued during your vacation time still impact your child’s attendance record.

6.    When all other measures fail, students may be referred to the district attendance/truancy, or other appropriate agencies.

Class Snacks

We will have a class snack each day.  We would appreciate snack donations throughout the school year.

Behavior

Each student will be responsible for the contract signed through the school.  It will be reinforced through the following categories:

Individual – students will have the opportunity to earn points for behavior through Class DoJo.  You will have your own log in to view your child's behavior.

Class – as a cohesive group of learners, students will have the opportunity to earn a class reward.  Once they have reached their goal, students will discuss as a team and vote on an appropriate reward.  We will notify you when this occurs.

Students choosing not to abide by the school contract and classroom rules (to be determined by the students) will be given a warning, then given a break from class or group work, and lastly a call home.  

Birthdays

Due to different belief systems and the increased number of students with food allergies we highly encourage classroom celebrations to be group centered!

1.     Hands-on experience for the entire class provided by the family.  For example: science projects, arts & crafts, demos, talents, tricks, etc.

2.    Tangible donations to the classroom.  For example: book(s), plant(s), general things for the classroom, etc.
