To report your child absent or tardy, please contact us in one of three ways:

1. Call 303-982-5150, Option 1 and leave a message
2. Sent an email using the "Attendance" Quick Link, or
(please do not depend on an email to the teacher, as they often don't have chance to check their mail until later in the day).
3.  Call the Front Office at 303-982-5188

The front office is open from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm if you prefer to talk with staff.

Marshdale Elementary adheres to the Colorado Board of Education and Jefferson County School policies for attendance. This includes:

* All tardies and absences will be marked on the student's record. For a tardy or absence to be considered "excused," it must fall under one of the categories explained in the Code of Conduct.

* A parent or named representative must sign a child in or out in the office whenever a student arrives after the tardy bell or leave before the dismissal bell.

* If a child will be absent for 5 school days in a row, please see the office for an "Extended Absence" form.

* If your child is not in attendance at school and no call is received or no message left, the Attendance Secretary will begin at 9:30 am trying to contact a parent using phone numbers on JeffcoConnect. This practice is to verify the child's safety. We understand that appointments need to be kept, etc., but we also need to make sure that no child is left alone at a bus stop or otherwise in need of help. To avoid getting calls, please let the office know if you will be absent or late.
