School Hours/Attendance


Regular school hours are 7:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m (grades K-2).

Full-day Kindergarten hours are:  7:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m

Half-day Kindergarten hours are:  8:00 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. 


The State of Illinois has determined the number of minutes for students in grades K-8:

Arrival between 7:30-8:30 am is a full day present.

Arrival after 8:30 am is a half-day present.

Departure before 1:00 pm is a half-day absence.

Departure after 1:00 pm is a full day present.

As you can see, whenever your child is late or leaves early, their attendance will be counted as a half day. You will need to sign your child in or out whenever they arrive late or dismiss early. Please go directly to the school office. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.


School attendance is critical for each student to achieve his/her potential. A record of absences and tardiness will be kept on all students.  Assigning work to be completed at home cannot duplicate class activities. Class begins at 7:30 a.m.

Late arrivals cause unnecessary interruptions in instruction for all students. Any students not in their classroom by 7:30 a.m. are considered tardy and will need to report to the office to be signed in before going to their classrooms. Students who arrive late must be walked into the office and signed in.  (STAFF MEMBERS ON DUTY ENTER THE BUILDING AT 7:30). Tardiness may result in a parent conference and, if warranted, a truancy report being filed with the State of Illinois.
