Denver Discovery School Student & Family Handbook 22-23


Attendance Line: 720 424 4791 (you can report your student absence any time of day). Absences will only be excused with a doctors note excusing the visits/illnesses. Notes can be faxed to the school at 720-424-4834.

While we understand the challenge of scheduling and unexpected illnesses, it is incredibly important that we have your children on time here every day, all day. When possible, please schedule any doctors’ appointments after school is finished for the day.

A recent study by the Baltimore Education Research Consortium found that poor attendance in the first month of school can predict chronic absence for the entire year. We need your children here every day in order to meet our goals around strong student engagement and high academic growth.

Attendance Policy As a middle school in Denver Public Schools, we follow DPS’s Attendance Policy.
