Reporting an Absence
Parents are responsible for contacting the school office at 217-384-3675 any day the student is absent. Please call between 7:30 and 8:30am if possible. If an extended absence is anticipated, please complete the form “Request to Classify an Absence as Excused” which is available from the school office.
School attendance hours are 8:15 – 3:00. Students should not arrive at school prior to 8:00am. In order for students to achieve academic success, it is important for them to attend school regularly and on time. If there are extenuating circumstances preventing your child from being on time, please schedule a time to meet with Bertha Kent, our Community Outreach Worker or the principal, so we may discuss possible solutions. As a reminder, classes begin promptly at 8:15am; therefore your child needs to be here by 8:10am and will be considered tardy after the 8:15 bell.
