• SCHOOL HOURS

    Regular school hours are 8:00 AM to 2:30 PM. Staff will be present to meet you a 7:45 AM for drop off and remain until 2:45 PM for pick up.

     

    ATTENDANCE

    School attendance is critical for each student to achieve his/her potential; assigning the work cannot duplicate class activities. Please make every attempt to be in school every day and to arrive on time. Late arrivals cause unnecessary interruptions for all.

     

    Students are to be in their room and ready to begin instruction at 8:00 AM or will be marked tardy. Punctuality is an important part of a child’s development. Parents will be notified in case of excessive tardiness. If you are aware your child will be late in arriving to school, please call the absentee hotline or send a note the previous day.

     

    ABSENCES

    Please call the 24-hour hotline before 8:00 AM. Our absentee hotline number is (708) 364-4848. You will be prompted to leave your child’s name, teacher name and the reason for the absence. Please be as specific as possible. The nurse will be informed of contagious conditions. If you child is absent for three (3) consecutive days or more, a doctor’s note specifying the nature of the illness is required. If you do not call absences into school, we will attempt to call you at home or work to ensure that your child is safe. You can assist by providing us with your most recent phone numbers. As per School Board Policy, students are not penalized for excused absences. Upon returning to school from an excused absence, the student will be given whatever make up work the teacher feels is necessary. Students will have two school days for each school day’s absence in order to complete the assigned make up work.
