Report an Absence

Report an Absence

Due to our ongoing efforts to assure the health of all students, we ask that you provide specific information regarding possible illness. If you are calling to report your child will be absent from school today, please indicate whether it is because:

  • Your child is ill or has flu like symptoms which include: cough, sore throat, fever over 100 degrees.
  • Your child has other reasons for being absent today (for example, other sickness, injury, funeral, etc.).
  • You are concerned about your child becoming sick, and are keeping them home as a preventative measure.


If your child does have a fever, he or she must remain at home, fever free for 24 hours without fever reducing medication (i.e., Advil, Tylenol, Motrin, etc.) before returning to school.

Please also indicate the following information:

  • Student's full name
  • Grade Level
  • Teacher's Name


You can report a student absent by either calling the main office number (847-888-7182) or emailing us at or
