Attendance Policy


Time and again we have found that missing classes and missing days, for whatever reason, is the slippery slope to not succeeding at Long View. First, a student misses a unique speaker or activity, then he or she fails to do the make-up work which not nearly as interesting as the original class. Then the student falls further behind, and a vicious cycle starts.

We want to stop that cycle before it starts. We strongly believe that students need to view school as a priority and need to order their lives and activities accordingly. While family, jobs, social activities, doctors’ appointments and such are all important, we encourage that they all be balanced so as to take the absolute least amount of time away from school.

+ If an appointment must be made during the school week, then realize that Thursdays, when we do field trips, is the worst day to miss, because it is impossible to replicate the field trip experience.

+ If a student is absent, a parent/guardian must call the main office at (303) 982-8523. Phone calls from the student to their first hour teacher, showing responsibility and a desire to make up the work, are also appreciated.

All absences are Unexcused unless a doctor or court note is presented to Donna.
