PLEASE LET THE OFFICE KNOW OF ABSENCES AND EARLY DISMISSALS!

The office holds the official attendance log for our students. Please let them know when your child will be absent, leaving early or arriving late. You can call or email anytime! Even if you let your child's teacher know....LET THE OFFICE KNOW TOO!


It's Easy to Report an Absence! Available 24 hours a day!


1. Call the school at 847-398-4275, press "1" OR

2. Use this link to record your child's attendance online


Please leave a specific reason for your child's absence.


When taking your child home for lunch or picking them up early please use this QR code. Just hover your camera app over the code.

PLEASE PUT YOUR CHILD'S NAME ON THEIR LUNCHBOX!

Your student can order a hot lunch or choose to take a bag with milk that also contains a fruit, vegetable, and grain. Click here for our district menu.


As a reminder, lunch is free this school year for all District 25 students.

WINTER RECESS

Winter is here and will be with us for awhile! All Ivy Hill Eagles are required to wear snow pants, boots, coats, hats and gloves to recess if there is snow on the ground. If they don't have the required gear, they cannot play in the snow. Most families find it easiest to put all snow gear into a large, plastic shopping bag so that the kids can keep it all together and change when needed. Again, please put your child's name on all outer wear!

HOLIDAY LIGHTS RECYCLE DRIVE

The PTA will be collecting your old holiday lights from December 6th - January 6th. There will be boxes set up in the foyer as well as in the school. If you have lights that don't work anymore, bring them to Ivy Hill to be recycled!
