SCHOOL HOURS / ATTENDANCE
Regular school hours are 7:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. with transportation supervision beginning at 7:15 a.m. Please do not drop your child off earlier than 7:15 a.m. or later than 7:25. We ask that you remain with your child until an adult is present.
In the event your child is absent, please call the 24 hour school absentee hotline. Our absentee hotline number is 364-3252.Please leave your child’s name, teacher name and the reason for the absence. Be as specific as possible as we report all contagious illnesses to the school nurse. If we do not hear from you, we will need to contact you at home or work. Also, you can assist us by providing us with your most recent telephone numbers.
School attendance is critical for each student to achieve his/her potential. A record of absences and tardiness will be kept on all students. Assigning work to be completed at home cannot duplicate class activities. Class begins at 7:30 a.m.
Late arrivals cause unnecessary interruptions in instruction for all students. Any students not in their classroom by 7:30 a.m. are considered tardy and will need to report to the office to be signed in before going to their classrooms. Students who arrive late must be walked into the office and signed in. (STAFF MEMBERS ON DUTY ENTER THE BUILDING AT 7:25). Tardiness may result in a parent conference and if warranted, possibly a truancy report being filed with the State of Illinois.
