Reporting Student Absences
Parents of students who will not be in attendance during any school day are asked to call the school office at 847-498-4970 before 8:15 a.m. to notify the school office of their children's absences as well as the reason for the absence. Calls placed prior to 8 a.m. will be accepted by voice mail at the school office. Absence information may be left on voice mail.
Parents who do not call the school when their children are absent will receive a call from the school. This telephone message policy has been implemented in order to assure the safety and security of the children.
Regular attendance is an important part of being a responsible student. Therefore, our Board of Education policy requires all students to be in full attendance For the entire school day. State attendance reporting regulations require a student must be in attendance 2.5 hours in both the a.m. and p.m. or be reported absent for the respective half day. Students arriving late, but within the 2.5-hour limit shall be considered tardy.
All persons who visit the school must sign in at the main office. A badge will be issued to all visitors who visit any area of the school, other than the principal's office. The badge should be worn so that it is visible to all staff members.
In order to maintain a productive learning environment, cell phone use is not permitted in the building. Anyone needing to use a cell phone is asked to do so outside.
