When a student will not be present at school, a parent must phone the Health Coordinator at 847-657-2194 by 8:30 a.m. on EACH day of the absence or give a range of dates. When leaving a message on the answering machine, the student’s parents should leave the student’s name, team, and reason for absence. If a parent notifies the student’s teachers about an upcoming absence, the parent must also call the health office with the same information. If there is no report of a child’s absence, the health office will contact home.
Best efforts should be made to make student’s appointments (medical, dental, etc.) and family vacations when school is not in session.
