  14. What is the attendance policy for Kindergartners?
    Regular daily attendance is expected of all kindergarten students.
    Attendance is the responsibility of the student, the parents, and the school. The importance of regular, daily attendance as a basis for academic achievement cannot be overemphasized. Absences have a negative effect on instructional continuity, regardless of attempts to make up work. Parents should inform the office and/or teacher about their child’s absence by 9:15 a.m. (attendance@rmae.org).  Parents may also leave attendance messages on the attendance line at 303.670.1070 x150.  
  15. Prearranged Absences – If you are planning a longer absence we ask that you notify the office in advance, by submitting a Pre-Arranged Absence Form to the office prior to the absence. The form is available for download on the RMAE website, under Family Resources>Forms.
