A child can never make up a day missed at school even though some assignments may be completed at a later date.  The interaction and instruction that takes place in the classroom are equally as valuable as written assignments.  Students should only be absent from school in the case of illness, unusual family difficulties, or emergency.  Parents are discouraged from requesting that students be excused from school for any other reasons.

When your child is absent, a parent is requested to call the school attendance line on 720-554-3795 before 8:00 a.m. to inform the school as to the nature of the absence.  If the child is absent and no call has been received from a parent, the school will call the home to check on the child.  The attendance line is available 24 hours a day.

Doorbell Entry System
The safety of our students is always at the forefront of district planning. Therefore, we have a doorbell entry system at our school. The front door will remain locked during the school day. When you wish to visit the school you must ring the doorbell that will ring into a phone in the main office. You must identify yourself and your reason for being at school. The office staff will be able to talk to you as well as see you in a monitor. Once staff has identified you and verified your reason for visiting the school, the door will unlock remotely to allow entrance. All visitors are asked to report to the office when they arrive at the building to sign in and wear a name badge.  Students from other schools or friends of Homestead students are NOT allowed to visit during the school day.  Parents are always welcome and may visit at any time; however, teachers are not available​ to conference with parents while they are teaching.  If you wish to talk with the teacher, please schedule a conference.

CCSD firmly believes that the valuable information and the interaction available on the internet far outweigh the possibility that users may procure material that is not consistent with the educational goals of CCSD.
