Platt Student Handbook: Attendance Policy Intro

Attendance Policy

Regular attendance is an essential part of a student’s education.  Platt Middle School strives to maintain a 95% attendance rate and expects students to be in attendance every day school is in session as required by the Compulsory Attendance Law and District Policy.  All absences have a negative effect on instructional continuity, regardless of the cause of the absence or the attempts to make up work missed.  Parents are requested to call 720-561-5534 by 9:00 am if a student is going to be absent from school that day or is planning to arrive late.
