The District #424 Attendance Policy is available in its entirety for anyone to review at each school building in the district and in the district office.  The following is an abbreviated version of that Policy.

Illinois school Code requires parents/guardians to ensure that their children ages 6 to 17 attend school in the district in which they reside.  The student must also attend school during the entire time school is in session.  To assist in this process, parents/guardians are asked to call the school before 10:00 A.M. to make notification of an absence.  Upon enrollment, parents/guardians must provide contact numbers to the school office.  If a student is absent without prior authorization/phone call from a parent/guardian, the principal/designee shall make a reasonable effort to contact the parent/guardian using the contact numbers given.  Should the principal/designee remain unable to contact the parent/guardian, the absence will be considered unexcused and can only be changed after subsequent parent/guardian contact due to a valid absence at the building administrator’s discretion.
