Attendance Matters

The Illinois School Code defines a “chronic absence” as 10 percent or more of school days of the most recent academic school year, including absences with and without valid cause (Section 26-2a).

Consistent attendance at school is critical to the academic and social-emotional growth of your child.  Teachers work to provide continuity from day to day so lessons build upon sequential goals and objectives.  Daily efforts are made to facilitate positive transitions from home to school and to develop responsible work habits.  Children who are excessively absent from school are at a disadvantage.

During these cold winter months, it can be hard to get started in the morning. We ask that you remain committed to arriving at school on time. If we can be of any help, please feel free to contact me or your child’s teacher.
