Reporting Student Absences

When a student is absent, the parents are asked to call or email the school each morning at 847-464-6008 or

email: cgallois@burlington.k12.il.us   proesslein@burlington.k12.il.us

that the student will be absent. If the parents do not call the school office, school personnel will call the home or, if necessary, the parent's work place. If a student has been absent from school due to illness/injury for 5 or more consecutive school days a doctor’s note stating the child is well enough to return to school must be presented upon returning to school. An absence that occurs as the result of a religious holiday is excused. The student has an equal number of days to make up classroom work as the number of days he/she was absent.
