Reporting an Absence

Report an absence to the Attendance Office by calling one of these numbers and providing your student’s ID number: 

  • 847-415-4029 (West Building)
  • 847-415-4020 (East Building)

Stevenson’s Attendance Office answering system is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

IF YOU ARE ILL
Absences should be reported before 3 p.m. Students who have been reported ill may not come to the campus for any reason that day. If they do, their absence will be considered unauthorized. Students will not be allowed to participate in evening or after-school activities on a full-day absence. 

IF YOU KNOW YOU WILL BE ABSENT (PRE-ARRANGED ABSENCES)
Parents must contact the Attendance Office prior to the date of the student’s absence. Also, students need to make arrangements with their teachers to obtain homework assignments.

IF YOU LEAVE SCHOOL EARLY
If leaving school due to illness, students must receive authorization from a nurse. Failure to do so will result in an automatic unauthorized absence. A school official will provide the student with a pass after he or she has contacted their parents. Failure to follow this procedure will result in disciplinary action.

If leaving early for any other reason (doctor’s appointment, etc.), one of the student’s parents must call the Attendance Office prior to the student leaving school grounds. Students must sign out through one of the Attendance Offices, and their parents must pick them up.

IF YOU REPORT LATE TO SCHOOL
• If less than five minutes late, report to your first period class.
• If more than five minutes late, report to one of the Attendance Offices.
• If checking out and returning the same day, report to one of the Attendance Offices upon departure and return.

IF YOUR STUDENT WILL MISS A CLASS AT THE LAKE COUNTY TECHNOLOGY CAMPUS
Call 847-223-6681, ext. 0. You also must report the absence to SHS.

Failure to follow these procedures will result in disciplinary consequences.
