Gifted & Talented

Aurora Public Schools offers a wide range of services for all identified gifted and talented and high potential students. For more information, visit the AGATE Website.

Students enrolled in the Aurora Public Schools are required to attend classes, unless excused for good reason in accordance with the Colorado Compulsory Attendance Law. Absences such as illness or injury, or absences approved by the principal and parents are regarded as excused absences. If a student’s absence is not caused by illness or injury or approved by the school principal, the absence shall be considered unexcused.  Irregular attendance and/or excessive tardiness may result in poor academic performance, lower grades, an intervention plan being developed by the parent/guardian and the site administrator, and/or a referral for truancy.  Students who are chronically truant, tardy or have serious behavioral issues may lose privileges to participate in activities at the end of the year.

REPORTING STUDENT ABSENCES AND TARDIES

A parent/guardian must report a student’s absence by calling Aurora Hills Middle School (303-341-7450 / Attendance Line: 303-326-1650 / or fax: 303-326-1250)  between 7:00 and 9:00 a.m. on the day of the absence. There will be a recorder number in operation from 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. the following morning to receive messages about student absences. The recorder number is 303-340-0614. The information that needs to be given to the office:

  1. Student’s name
  2. Student’s grade level
  3. Reason for the absence or tardy
  4. Length of absence or tardy if known
  5. Who is calling

If the length of the absence is not known, daily calls are requested.

AFTER 24 HOURS, THE ABSENCE OR THE TARDY IS AUTOMATICALLY RECORDED AS UNEXCUSED.  HAND WRITTEN NOTES ARE NOT ACCEPTED TO EXCUSE ABSENCES OR TARDIES.
