Report an Absence through Infinite Campus
As a reminder, BVSD's illness protocol follows CDPHE's How Sick is Too Sick guidelines.
Students may return to school or child care as long as the symptom(s) have been resolved for 24 hours unless the symptoms are caused by an illness that requires them to stay home longer.
COVID testing is recommended, not required, for anyone with COVID-like symptoms or a known exposure
Testing is available through BVSD and COVID Check Colorado throughout the district - see the schedule here
COVID-like symptoms include:
- Fever (100.4 and above), chills, new or worsening cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, runny nose or congestion, muscle or body aches, headache, fatigue, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea
Any individual who tests positive must isolate at home until:
They have had no fever for at least 24 hours — without the use of fever-reducing medicines, AND
Symptoms are improving, AND
It has been at least 5 days since symptoms began. (If symptoms do not develop, count 5 days from when the test was administered.)
Individuals should then wear a well-fitted mask for the next 5 days when around others. If they are unable to effectively wear a mask for an additional 5 days, they should isolate for the full 10 days.
If you have questions about returning to school after an illness, please contact our school's health office.
Parents and guardians can log in to their Infinite Campus Parent Portal site to notify School staff of an expected student absence. This will ensure the authenticity of reported absences, while also providing families with improved communication when a student misses class.
See below for a step-by-step guide that can help you through the process.
The BVSD Report Absence Form allows parents and guardians to securely report a student’s absence from school for a single day. Users submitting an absence report will receive a confirmation email at the contact email address listed in Infinite Campus. The form can be toggled between English and Spanish. Confirmation emails will be sent in English or Spanish depending on the preferred language of the user listed in Infinite Campus.
Students are not able to self-report absences from Campus Student.

Grades Kindergarten to 5th: 7:55 a.m.-2:30 p.m.
Preschool: AM—8:00-10:45 PM—11:45-2:30 Tuesday to Friday
Playground supervision begins at 7:45 a.m. and ends at 2:45 p.m. Please watch your children until staff arrives on the playgrounds at 7:45 a.m. The office opens at 7:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Attendance and Reporting
In the event your child is ill or delayed, please call the attendance line-720-561-8902 or the school office-720-561-8900 before 8:15am. Promptly contacting the office will prevent us from disturbing your home or workplace, and keep the absence from being marked as unexcused. As a safety precaution, you will receive a call from the district informing you about your student’s absence. If you know your student will be absent for more than 3 days, please request the “Prearranged Absence Form” at the main office and bring it back prior to the dates of absence.
Vacations and Family trips
Please plan family vacations and activities when school is not in session. Our school calendar is finalized by the end of each school year for the next school year so that plans may be made with school vacations in mind. If you and your family plan to take a vacation during scheduled school time, please be aware that your student will need to continue to be responsible for the learning that takes place during the time that is missed.
We urge you to stress the importance of regular, prompt attendance. Habits of a lifetime are formed in elementary school and can only benefit your child in future years of education.
All children arriving after the 8:00 a.m. bell must report to the main office and obtain a pass BEFORE entering the classroom.
If you need to pick up your child at a time other than normal dismissal, please stop at the office for assistance. Teachers are not permitted to release students without authorization from the office.
Parent Drop Off
Parents are asked to drop off students in the “Hug & Go” on Bermont Avenue. Parents driving their children should not cross moving traffic to safely arrive at the sidewalk area. From the bus drop off or sidewalk areas, students can safely walk to the playgrounds before school on their own. Please do not drive into the bus circle area in front of the building as this is reserved for school buses only. Between the hours of 7:30-8:30 am and 2:00-3:30pm there will not be parking spaces available in the front of the building. Please request a map from the front office or visit our website for more details.
