Attendance Policy

Attendance policy: The policy for remote learning attendance is the same as in-person.  School starts daily at 8:45am and ends at 3:45 pm.  Classes begin with cameras on at 8:45am. Students are marked tardy if they arrive at 8:55am. Students must be present for instruction with the teacher (synchronous learning) to receive credit for attendance. Please note that only completing assignments in Google Classroom and not logging in to class is considered absent.  

Reporting an absence: Only the parent/guardian may report a student’s absence to the Main Office at (773)535-3843 from 8:30am-6:00pm Monday-Friday. 

Causes for excused absences: The following reasons are considered excused absences by Chicago Public Schools:

  • Student's Illness
  • Observance of a religious holiday
  • Death in the immediate family
  • Family Emergency/Personal
  • Concern for student's health and safety (Dr. Appointment)
  • Home/Hospital program
