Q: What do I do if my child will be late for school?

Students are expected to be in their first period class by 8:25am.  If a student is late to school, the student must sign in at the Main Office upon arrival.  Parents are not required to accompany their child inside. After signing in, the student will be issued a pass to class.  

A student’s tardy to school is regarded as “excused” if a medical appointment or a family emergency was the cause of the late arrival. Students who are late for other reasons that are otherwise within their control (such as oversleeping or leaving the house too late) are regarded as “unexcused,” and we will help students monitor their tardies to school to help them cultivate good time management habits. And since students arriving late to school require special office attention and whose late arrival to class an disrupt the flow of classroom activities, there is a trimester limit (5) to the number unexcused tardies.  Students who exceed the trimester limit of unexcused tardies will need to meet with one of the principals and may be issued a minor consequence.

Parents are requested to call the Attendance Line at (847)486-7712 to report a late arrivals so attendance can be marked accurately.
