District 181 Emergency School Closing Information
The school calendar is established in advance. While we realize the value of family time, the planning of vacations while school is in session is strongly discouraged. If students will be absent from school due to vacation, parents must complete a special absence notification form and return it to school before the absence. Teachers will not be required to re-teach material missed by students. If a planned absence will occur at the end of a grading period, students will be required to submit all work before leaving on the planned absence.
In the event of a planned absence, a parent must email, send a note, or contact Lorna Galandak in the Student Services Office: 630.861.4803 • firstname.lastname@example.org.
