• Hello Westy Families,

    As we begin this semester, I would like to discuss the importance of your student’s attendance.  The Colorado Department of Education and that State of Colorado  define “chronically absent” as a student that misses more than 10 school days in one year.  Students that are considered chronically truant are less likely to reach their highest potential and are less likely to graduate from high school.  Please reference this link for an important article in regards to this. https://www.colorincolorado.org/article/school-attendance-key-success 

    We care about your student and we want the absolute best for them.  Please have a conversation as a family to talk about the importance of their attendance in school and taking ownership of their education. If you have questions in regards to this information feel free to contact your student’s administrator as listed here.  https://www.westminsterpublicschools.org/domain/1850

    Thank you,

    Kiffany Kiewiet

    Principal, Westminster High School
