Attendance

24-HOUR ATTENDANCE LINE

303-387-3002

Due to Covid-19, our attendance policies have been changed to minimize contact and eliminate the delivery of passes to classrooms.  We highly encourage appointments to be made for at-home learning days whenever possible. 

  • Line 1 - EARLY RELEASE (getting out of class early for an appointment, etc.)
    • If appointments are made in advance of the day of the appointment/absence, please leave the message at least the night before so we can have a pass prepared for your student first thing in the morning.  Passes will be available on a table in front of the Attendance window for students to pick up during the day.
    • Whenever possible, please have students released during passing periods or during lunch.  In these instances, a pass will NOT be written for students. Students should proceed to the Attendance window to sign out of school.  Students will need to scan the QR code below or at the Attendance window and fill out and submit the check-in/check-out form. Scanning the QR code and signing in/out of school does not make it an excused absence.  Parents must call in to excuse any absence, tardy or early release from school.
    • If a same day appointment is needed, please allow at least 2 hours for an early release. Although we strive to do our best to release your student, not providing enough notice for an early release could result in a delay in releasing your student.
  • Line 2 - TARDY LINE (arriving late to class)
    • A tardy is considered as missing less than half of a class period, while an absence is missing more than half of a class period.  See Note below.
  • Line 3 - ALL OTHER (out all day with illness, travel, etc.)
    • See note below.

All students must sign in/out at the attendance window if they are arriving late or leaving early. This will save teachers and students time if a teacher does not change the absence to a tardy.  This is the QR code (also displayed at the Attendance window) that must be used to sign in/out:

RCHS Attendance QR Code

NOTE: Line 2 and Line 3 are cleared as time allows and the information will be entered into Infinite Campus by the end of the school day each day.  No early release passes will be written after 1:45pm since the last class starts at 1:55 and we are no longer running passes to classes.
