Student Conduct and Attendance

The policies, procedures and guidelines at Mullen are designed to educate, promote, and contribute to the Five Core Lasallian Principles of our community.

We encourage you to contact us should you have any questions.

Dress Code Frequently Asked Questions

List of 6 frequently asked questions.

  • Why does Mullen have a Dress & Appearance Code?

    In keeping with the Lasallian Core Principle of Inclusive Community, we maintain a uniform dress and appearance code. Abiding by the Mullen uniform dress code offers each individual student a means to demonstrate their full participation in our school community. Compliant apparel may be purchased through Land’s End, Educational Outfitters, and the Mullen Outfitters store run by the Mullen Parents Association.

    Failure to abide by the Mullen Dress and Appearance Code will result in consequences outlined in the Student Conduct section of the 2021-2022 Handbook.

Attendance Frequently Asked Questions

List of 8 frequently asked questions.

  • Who do I notify when I'll be absent?

    Your parent(s) or guardian(s) should notify the Secretary of Attendance (303.761.1266) of your absence by 9:00 a.m. on the day in which it occurs. Failure to do so will result in a call from the Secretary of Attendance. A potential result of a student being out of class without a call from their parent/guardian would be the absence being marked as “unexcused” in each of the student’s courses for the day.
  • What if I'm running late?

    If you won't make it to school by the time the bell rings, please check in with the Secretary of Attendance for a tardy slip. Your parent or guardian will need to call and let us know why you're running late. If we don't hear from them, it'll count as an "unexcused tardy" and you'll have to serve detention.
  • What do I do if I need to leave early?

    Your parent(s) or guardian(s) will need to call the Secretary of Attendance (303.761.1266) to give advance notice that you'll need to leave early.
  • What if I'll be absent for a while?

    We really encourage parents/guardians to avoid scheduling family trips or vacations that would result in you, the student, missing school. However, if you need to be absent for 4 or more days, please come collect an "Extended Absence" form from the Office of Student Conduct and Attendance.
  • What is an "excessive" number of absences?

    OSCA will review the records of any student who misses an individual class 7 times or is absent from  30 total classes (6 full days of school) during a particular trimester.  Consequences for excessive absences may include attending a Parent-Assistant Principal conference and being placed on an Attendance Contract. 
  • What is Truancy?

    "Truancy" is the term we use for students who:
    • come to school but do not report to class
    • leave school without notifying the Secretary of Attendance
    • leave class without permission
    • do not report to a location they asked for permission to report to.
    Truancy will result in immediate notification of the student’s parent or guardian, and the student will be referred to the Dean of Student for further action.
  • Can I attend class virtually (through Zoom)?

    We will only be allowing virtual attendance if the school has called a distance learning day for inclement weather.
  • I'm (finally) a Senior! Can I go off-campus?

    Yes, as long as you and your parent or guardian have completed the electronic permission form. Please remember, though, that this is a privilege and not a right -- it can be taken away!
