Report an Absence

Attendance Procedures—General

As educators, we know that when a child misses a significant number of days from school, that child's education suffers accordingly. To help your child do his/her best in school, we encourage you to do everything in your power to promote good school attendance.

Absences must be reported by 7:50 a.m. on the day a student is absent. To report an absence, call 815-648-2442 and press 1 for the attendance line. Press 1 again for elementary attendance; press 2 for middle school/high school attendance. Report the student’s name, grade level, brief reason for the absence, and your relationship to the student.

Please note that we reserve the right to verify any phone call reporting the absence of a student.
