Attendance is vital to the success of students and students are expected to attend school on a daily basis. Please help the school instill this important value by arranging doctor appointments, vacations, and lessons outside of school hours so that interruptions to valuable instruction time can be kept to a minimum. Students who are absent during the day may not participate in after-school or evening programs.
The policy regarding school attendance is clearly defined by the Illinois School Code. The responsibility for regular school attendance belongs to the parents. County regulations require the school to report students with excessive absences (approximately 18 days or more).
