Question

What procedure do I follow if my child is going to be absent or late to school?

Answer

To report an absence of if your child will be late to school, please call our attendance line at (630)429-3220, press 1.  Leave your student's name, (spelling the last name), grade, and reason for the absence or late arrival.  Please call before 7:45 a.m.  All students arriving late to school will be marked at "tardy".  Tardiness due to sickness, doctor's appointment or family emergencies will be considered excused when the student arrives with an appropriate admit from the doctor or is signed in by the parent/guardian.  Students that miss one class are marked absent for 1/2 day.  Students that miss three or more classes are marked absent for a full day.

Question

If my child has unexcused tardiness, will I be informed?

Answer

Yes, after the fourth unexcused tardy you will be informed by a phone call or by a tardy form that your child will receive a detention.  Each student receives one family emergency tardy per trimester.  Except for doctor's appointments, all other tardies are unexcused.  Tardiness due to illness will be accepted 3 times before a doctor's note is required.  Tardy records are wiped clean at the beginning of each trimester.

Question

If I need to pick up my child early from school, what is the procedure?

Answer

If your child needs to leave school early for any reason, please send a note to school with your child.  The note should include your student's name and grade, the reason for leaving the building, and the time you will be picking them up.  Your student should turn in this note to the office, before 8:00 a.m.  The office does not call your student; he/she will be given a pass stating the time they are to leave the classroom.  When you come in to pick up your child, you must go to the office and sign him/her out.  Remember to include the time you will be picking your child up, not the time of the appointment, in the note.

Question

Question

What is the proper procedure for dropping off or picking up my student?

Answer

All students should be dropped off at the front (north) entrance.  All vehicles should enter from the east driveway and exit through the west driveway.  Please form one line, next to the curb closest to the front of the school.  Drop off students quickly and then move on.  If you are done dropping off before the person ahead of you, the right side of the driveway is for pulling out (with caution.) Please pause at the pedestrian cross walk before exiting.  Please do not enter the parking lot to drop off students because this adds to delaying the traffic flow and is dangerous to your child.  The bus lane (far west) is reserved for buses only at all times.  No cars should drive into the back parking lot.

Question

What if my child needs to make a phone call from school?

Answer

Students may bring cell phones to school, but the phones must be turned off and stored in their locker from the time students arrive at school until 2:50 p.m.  A phone is available for students to use.  Office phones are only available to students in an emergency situation.

Question

What if my child has to take any medication (over-the-counter or prescribed) during the school year?

Answer

Have your physician complete a medication permission form.  You can obtain this form either from our Health Office or go to the district website (www.naperville203.org/departments/health/Forms.asp) and print it for your physician.  We must have this form on file before we can dispense any medication to your child.

Medication, both prescription and over-the-counter, must be brought to school in the original pharmacy or manufacturer's container.  Over-the-counter medication containers need to be labeled with your child's name and grade.

Any medication currently at school will be sent home with your child on the last full day of school, with the exception of emergency medications.  These will be sent home the last day of class attendance.  Please let the Health Office know if this is unacceptable so that other arrangements can be made.

Question

What if my child has a life threatening allergy?

Answer

The child should be fully aware of what happens to them when exposed to these situations.  Our Health Office also needs to be aware of this condition and have current and accurate Emergency Contact Information.  As parent/guardian, we strongly suggest that you visit our Health Office as soon as possible to insure all proper forms are complete, secondary medication(s) are available and all other questions may be properly addressed in a timely fashion.
