Report an Absence

 PARENT/GUARDIAN NOTIFICATION OF ABSENCES

Parents/guardians must notify the Attendance Office if their student will be absent for any reason within 24 hours of the absence. Preferred method for reporting an absence/tardy is via email at attendance@theacademyk12.org. Or by calling 303-289-8088 for (Main Campus) dial ext. 101 for (North Campus) dial ext. 502 for a 24-hour answering machine to report an absence.  When reporting an absence please leave the following information: Who is reporting the absence, student name/grade and reason for the absence. 
 
The most common form of communicating absences is through the  automated message system. We encourage parents to use their cell phones as the primary contact number for these automated messages.
A letter may be  mail if a student has multiple absences. Parents please refer to (Page 15 of the Student/Parent Handbook) for Missed assignments and Make-Up Work Policy. Parents are encouraged to contact your students teacher(s) regarding missing assignments and make up work.
