Attend. Aspire. Achieve.

What does attendance mean to you? Every student and family will have their own meaning for great attendance. For schools in St. Vrain, the goal is simple - have your student attend everyday and miss less than 10 days of school per year for any reason. The value of consistent attendance is one of the most important factors in determining if a student will do well in school, graduate and be prepared for success in future grades, their careers and postsecondary education.

How can I support regular attendance?
There are many reasons why students want to miss school, but start the conversation early about the importance of regular attendance and ask your child how they feel about school. A habit of attendance is a school readiness skill. Building high attendance habits is also a life skill that will impact success as future employees, leaders and citizens.
 
Students of all ages thrive on routines, build regular routines for bedtime and in the morning. Some families have found using a chart to record attendance at home and talk with your child about what you see.
 
Many parents say that getting out of the house in the morning is the hardest part of the day. From packing lunches to an unexpected phone call from work, you never know what will happen as you are working hard to get out the door. Develop back up plans for getting to school if something comes up. Ask a family member, neighbor or another parent for help.
 
Seek support from school staff or community groups to help with transportation, academics, health problems or a safe path to school. You can also contact the Student Attendance and Engagement Office at 303-702-7887 for assistance.
 
What should I do when my student is ill?
No matter how many times you wash your hands and clean your house, it always seems to happen... The 3:00 a.m. wake up call no parent looks forward to - “I’m sick.” If your child has a fever or is vomiting, please keep them home. When your child is sick and they need to miss school, please notify your school directly to get the absence excused.
 
How will I be notified of an unexcused absence?
In St. Vrain, communicating unexcused absences is an important first step in supporting student success and delivering resources to students and families who may need extra support to maintain regular attendance. We will communicate unexcused absences through the Messenger® tool in Infinite Campus (IC).
 
The IC Messenger application allows us to communicate with parents/guardians via phone, email, text messaging or portal inbox as designated in the Infinite Campus Parent Portal. You get to control how you are notified, but we will cover that in the next section. If your student needs to miss school due to illness or other prearranged absence, it is important that you contact your school to get the absence excused. This will help the school better identify unexcused absences and allow your school to communicate through text, email and voice notifications.
 
Where can I change my settings?
It is important to routinely verify and adjust these settings to ensure you are receiving all important school and district communications through your desired media. To adjust how you receive communications from your school or St. Vrain Valley Schools, start by logging into the Infinite Campus Parent Portal at http://stvra.in/icparent. If you do not have a login or password, contact your local school for assistance.
