Whenever a student, preschool-8th grade is absent from school his/her parent or guardian is expected to telephone the school at (847) 255-0050 to report the absence. Calls should be made between 7:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. Calls will be answered by the school voicemail system (elementary or middle school). Please indicate your name, the student’s name, homeroom teacher or room number, and the reason for absence. For accuracy sake verbal messages from siblings or e-mails regarding an absence will not be accepted. If a student has been marked absent by his or her homeroom teacher and no call has been received, the school will ordinarily contact a parent at home or at work to verify the child’s whereabouts. Failure of parent/guardian to cooperate with the school in this procedure may jeopardize the safety of your child.
– Requests for elementary school homework assignments should be given at the attendance call.
– Homework requests for 6th, 7th and 8th graders may be found on “google classroom“.
