Attendance

To report your child’s absence, please email Attendance@rmae.org.

The Colorado Department of Education and the Jefferson County School District have set a goal for all students to be in school at least 95% of school time. Since tardiness and appointments count against school hours, we ask that children be at school on time and any appointments should be scheduled outside of school hours whenever possible.

School attendance for students is the responsibility of the student, parents and the school. The following policy identifies school expectations and consequences for our parent/student community. Rocky Mountain Academy’s attendance policy is compliant with Jefferson County School District guidelines and rules and with Colorado Compulsory Attendance law.  This district policy will be strictly enforced.

Known Absence Request Policy & Procedure – Fundamentally, it is very important for your student to be in class every day. Every time your child is away during class time, he or she misses the opportunity to learn the new material discussed in that class.  In addition, upon returning, he or she may require assistance to catch up on the missing material.

Prearranged Absences – If you are planning a longer absence we ask that you notify the office in advance, by submitting the RMAE Pre Arranged Absence Form to the office prior to the absence.

Thank you for insuring your student understands the responsibility of school attendance and related consequences.
