Policy Reminder: Attendance and Absenteeism

The Illinois state board of education requires students to attend a minimum of 90% of the days on the school-year calendar in order to progress to the next grade level. In other words, you child can only miss a maximum of 18 days of school each year. Removing your child from school early or bringing them late may count as a half day absence should they not attend at least 5 hours of the school day.


Please keep this in mind as you are planning your family vacations. If possible, schedule vacations during breaks in order to avoid absenteeism issues and falling behind academically. Teachers will put together a maximum of one week of work for a vacation, as explained in the handbook, however there may still be work to makeup when the student returns.
