Attendance/Report an Absence

Reporting Absences


As a reminder, BVSD's illness protocol is as follows:

If your child is experiencing fever, cough, loss of taste or smell, or chills (major symptoms) that last longer than 24 hours they must have a negative PCR COVID test to return to school or they will need to stay home for 10 days. 

If your child is experiencing any other symptom (minor symptoms) that last longer than 48 hours they must 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. Parents MUST report a positive test result to the school. 

If you have questions about returning to school after an illness, please contact our school's health office.

Excused Absences

Please call ​​in/report the absence in Infinite Campus 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: 720-561-4901.


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/report the absence in Infinite Campus the same day.  Please do not have the student give the note to a teacher.

Pre-arranged Absences

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.  Click HERE to access the form

Leaving Campus

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. Students do not need to sign in and out when leaving campus during the lunch hour.

Notification of Tardies/Absences

An automated attendance phone call/email/text (based on you IC preferences) will be sent between 4:00 - 6:30 pm on the day of a tardy or unexcused absence. Please check your daily and respond with your name, relationship to the student, and reason why the absence should be excused.
