Attendance Procedures/Reminders



If your child is to be absent from school, you are required to call the school absentee line at 847-659-4311 before 9:00 a.m. and report the absence each day.


School policy requires a Doctor written excuse for any student who is absent from school due to illness in excess of 4 days per quarter.  It is recommended that you also get a Doctor’s note for all doctor/dentist appointments that you have throughout the school year and turn them into the office.


For students arriving late to school, please leave a message on the school absentee line at 847-659-4311 as to the reason for the late arrival.


For planned absences, such as family vacations during the school year, parents should notify the academic team and the office in writing.


Please review your child’s Heineman Student Handbook for additional information regarding “Absences/Attendance/Tardies”.
