Tardies – Please remember to accompany your child into school and sign him/her in at door #6.  When signing in, please write the students name in and the reason for the tardiness.  “Late” is not an excused reason for the student being tardy.

Attendance Line

Written by Mrs. Brannon on .

TO REPORT AN ABSENCE: Please call the attendance line at (815)744-6166 ext. 105 by 9:00 AM to report your child's absence. Please remember to  include a reason for the absence. Students who have been to a doctor's appointment, may be required to bring a note from the doctor when they return to school.

STUDENTS WHO ARE TARDY: Please sign your student into the Late Arrival/Tardy book in the Principal's office. Please keep in mind that every time a student is late, they are missing valuable class time. Missed class time means missed learning time.
