Attendance Procedures
In the event of an absence, the student's parent or guardian is required to call the school at 217-444-3350 before 7:50 am for morning session (11:50 am for afternoon session) to explain the reason for the absence. If a call has not been made to the school by 9:00 am for morning session (1:00 pm for afternoon session) on the day of a student's absence, a school official and the Alert Now system will call the home to inquire why the student is not at school. If the parent or guardian cannot be contacted, the student will be required to submit a signed note from the parent or guardian explaining the reason for the absence.

Once a student has reached a total of six (6) absences (excused by parent and unexcused), any additional absences may require official documentation explaining the reason for the student's absence.

Illinois law requires that whoever has custody or control of any child between six (6) and seventeen (17) years of age (unless the child has already graduated from high school) shall assure that the child attends school in the district in which he or she resides, during the entire time school is in session. Illinois law also requires that whoever has custody or control of a child who is enrolled in school, regardless of the child's age, shall assure that the child attends school during the entire time school is in session.

Please refer to the Ownership in Education Handbook and/or the Parent/Student Handbook for more information.
