A Message from Principal Norris-Buck

Dear Royal Families,


We had a great week and want to congratulate our new National Junior Honor Society inductees! We recorded the virtual ceremony, and it is posted on our Quist website. This time of year is a busy one as we begin planning for next school year. 27J would like to know what your thoughts are about the 21-22 school year. Please take a moment to complete a very short survey below. The information you provide will help us get a sense of potential numbers for next year and is not an official commitment.


The State of Colorado plans on asking school district to give the CMAS state tests in English Language Arts, Mathematics and Science this spring. They want all virtual students to come into the building to take this assessment. Mr. Marlatt and Mr. Komora, our School Assessment Coordinators, have created a short survey to gather some information to help us continue to plan.


Open Enrollment: The Open Enrollment period has begun. If you open enrolled into Quist and want to stay at Quist, your child will automatically roll up into Quist. If your child is in 8th grade, open enrolled at Quist and your boundary high school isn't RRHS, you will need to open enroll there for your child to attend. If you have any additional questions, please call the front office and speak with me or our registrar, Mrs. Davis.


We hope you have a wonderful weekend,


Trina Norris-Buck, Ed.S.

Online Learning Survey/Interest Form

The online learning model has been both a challenge and an opportunity for many students. While we don't know exactly what the next school year will look like, we trust you know your students the very best. We need your help as we plan for next school year. Please fill out this form for each student you have at Quist. This is not a commitment to any particular mode of learning for next year, but rather an information gathering for our school.

Superintendent Attendance Policy

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.
