    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 upon 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.
