Reporting an Absence
If your student will be absent for the day, please call the Attendance Office as soon as possible to report the absence. Provide the student’s last and first name, date of attendance to be updated, and reason for the absence.
Alternatively, please email the attendance office.
If you know you are going to check out your student from school early due to an appointment or otherwise, please notify us as early as possible. If you call in the morning, we can more easily have the student ready to be picked up at the appropriate time. You can reach the attendance office at 719-234-2000 Option 1.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to come into the building to drop off and pick up a student?
No. Simply call or email the attendance office with the above information and your request will be processed.
What do I do if I need another family member to check out my student?
Only parents/guardians may authorize a student release and will need to call ahead of time. Anyone listed in your IC Emergency Contacts may pick up your student but cannot excuse the absence. Please make sure your Infinite Campus information is accurate. Should you have any other questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the attendance office.
My student texted me to pick them up due to illness/not feeling well. How do I check them out?
For safety reasons, please have your student go to the health room. The nurse or health room para will then let us know when your student will be going home.
How do I know if my student’s attendance was updated, or my message was received?
As soon as the attendance office receives a call, the attendance is updated in the IC database. To see if your message was received, please log into your IC Parent Portal.
My student was marked absent but says they were in class. What do I do?
Your student will need to speak with the teacher of attendance and ask that the teacher contact the attendance office to update.
