For Parents
Parents and schools support each other working together for the betterment of the students. Parents play an important role in providing support and building the confidence of their children.

General Information for Parents and School Visitors
  • All visitors MUST sign in at the office when entering the building. 

Attendance
  • Doors open at 8 a.m. for students
  • IF YOUR CHILD IS TARDY (does not arrive until after 8:30 a.m.), A PARENT/GUARDIAN MUST COME INTO THE SCHOOL OFFICE WITH THEIR STUDENT & SIGN THE CHILD IN ON THE LOG PROVIDED.

  • Students need to be in school in order to receive the best posssible education.  It is important that each child achieves success in school. Your encouragement and support is appreciated.  Our concern is what is best for your child. 

     


  • Illinois law requires regular attendance for school age children.  Your responsibility as a parent or guardian is established under the School Code of Illinois.  The School Code defines a "truant" as, "...a child subject to compulsory school attendance who is absent without valid cause from such attendance for a school day or portion thereof.

If your child misses school, please call the office at 244-8068 or write a note giving the reason he/she missed.  We appreciate your cooperation.

Cell Phones
  • Cell phone use is FORBIDDEN by state law in any designated school zone! This means that even if you are waiting in line to pick up your student or have just picked up your student, you CANNOT be on your cell phone until you leave the school zone. Violators will be issued a $120 fine.
Cold Weather
  • If it is above 32 degrees, snow is on the ground and gusting winds, teachers will use their judgment considering the length of time to be outside.  S 
    ometimes a little fresh air and time to run is good for the students after sitting at their desks for a good part of the morning.

    If your child is not to go outside for any reason, a note needs to be sent to school from the parent.
