Attendance

St. Vrain Valley Schools recognizes the importance of being present every day. Student attendance – more than a test score or any other data point – is one of the most accurate indicators of whether a student will graduate and find success after high school. It is critical for students to attend school daily in order to acquire the knowledge, skills and confidence needed to be college and career ready.
