If the lines are busy or no one answers, please leave a message or email both emails as we check those frequently. 

For the safety of students and the accurate monitoring of attendance, please follow the procedures below.                        

When calling the attendance line, please leave a VOICE MAIL message with your student’s name, SPELLING LAST NAME, your name and phone number where you can be reached, the date and times of the absence, and the reason your student is missing class.

  • Absences cannot be excused without a specific date and specific class period given or all day.

  • Per EVHS Policy Freshman and Sophomores are not allowed to leave campus for lunch. They may NOT be checked out to leave for lunch either. 

  • As applicable, we may require suitable proof regarding a student's absences, including written statements from medical sources.

  • Each student will have a 15 Miscellaneous Excuse threshold per class per semester. Once this exceeds that number, school contact will be initiated. An ME is an absence that does not fall within the other descriptions.

  • If there is an error in your child's attendance, you have up to 10 days to clear the absence before it is locked.

  • If a student is absent or checked out due to illness they may return the following day as long as they are symptom free for 24 hours.

The following will be considered excused absences:

1.  A student who is temporarily ill or injured or whose absence is approved by the administrator of the school of attendance on a prearranged basis. Prearranged absences will be approved for appointments or circumstances of a serious nature only which cannot be taken care of outside of school hours.

2.  A student who is absent for an extended period due to a physical disability or a mental or behavioral health disorder .

3.  A student who is pursuing a work-study program under the supervision of the school.

4.  A student who is attending any school-sponsored activity or activities of an educational nature with advance approval by the administration.

5.  A student who is suspended or expelled.

If a student is in out-of-home placement (as that term is defined by C.R.S. 22-32-138 (1)(h)), absences due to court appearances and participation in court-ordered activities will be excused. The student´s assigned social worker must verify the student's absence was for a court appearance or court-ordered activity.

Errors: If you believe your student was marked tardy or absent in error, your student should communicate directly with their teacher to clear up any discrepancies. If any correction needs to be made, your student's teacher will email the attendance office with any corrections needed. Due to call volume, the attendance office cannot contact your student's teacher for you.                     

Our computerized parent notification system will contact you each evening to inform you of unresolved absences. Messages on the attendance line are reviewed daily and every effort is made to update PowerSchool in a timely manner, however, changes may take up to 24 hours to reflect in our student’s record. 

We appreciate your help in following these procedures. If you have any questions, feel free to call the Attendance Office.

Early Dismissal Procedures

Please call the attendance line to excuse your student from those periods they will miss completely. If you are calling with less than one hour's notice of the required early dismissal, the attendance office can contact the class to notify the teacher to release the student. Due to the size of our campus, requests to release a student from class cannot always be accommodated on short notice – we may not have someone available to deliver the notification in a timely manner.

Parent Notification

Our computerized parent notification system will call your home each evening to inform you of unexcused absences. A call to the Attendance Office to excuse the absence on the day of the absence (before 8:40 a.m.) will prevent the computer from calling you. We appreciate your help in following these procedures. If you have any questions, feel free to call the Attendance Office.
