A Message from Principal Norris-Buck

Dear Rodger Quist Families,


We want to take this opportunity to thank YOU for all your support of our school, staff and students. So many of you have been extremely complimentary and appreciative of our staff’s efforts. We are grateful. We are also grateful for your efforts at home. We know that we are about to enter into another time which personally, makes me feel a variety of emotions. The two main ones being a little relieved because I can see the number of cases rising in our state. The second is sadness. I am going to miss our Royals being in our building. I look forward to seeing them virtually. If you missed our communication earlier this week, you can access it here. We will send another communication the Friday before we begin school again with more details. Until then, we wish you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving.


Our form for 2nd semester learning choices will closes today. Please complete it only if you want to change your learning preferences for your child(ren) for second semester.


Trina Norris-Buck, Ed.S.

Big picture

Parent Survey

Thank you to all who shared your feedback with us through the Parent Survey. Here are the results if you would like to look at them yourself. We take this feedback seriously and will use it to help us continue to grow and get better as a school. Our highest areas of celebration are safety, communication and a welcoming environment. Our lowest area is parents feeling like an important part of their child’s learning. In this current environment it is challenging to find ways to involve families in a meaningful way. If you have ideas of how I can make this better, I am interested in hearing from you!

Superintendent Policy - Student Attendance

We have had an increase in students leaving early from remote classes. It is very important that students stay for the entire class just as they would if they were in class at the school. Below is the district attendance policy regarding tardies, early departures, and partial absences. If a student needs to leave a remote class early for an appointment etc., a parent/guardian will need to call the front office at 303-655-6950.



Tardies, Early Departures and Partial Absences


6.1 Leaving class without permission will result in a partial absence being recorded.

6.2 Tardies, early departures and partial absences will be determined to be excused or unexcused based on the same criteria as all other absences.

6.3 Tardy is defined as a student’s arrival within 10 minutes of the scheduled start time for the class.

6.4 Early departure is defined as a student’s departure from class within the last 10 minutes of the class.

6.5 Partial absence is defined as a student arriving 10 or more minutes late to class, or leaving 10 or more minutes before the end of class.
