Reporting an Absence

In an effort to ensure accurate daily attendance counts, please be sure to report student absences as soon as possible. To report an absence to the Attendance Office: 

  • Call 847-415-4000 and press 2
  • Provide your student’s ID number

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

If You Are Ill
Please follow the protocol listed above. Students who have been reported ill may not come to the campus for any reason that day (after-school activities/sporting events). 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 unauthorized absence. A school official will provide the student with a pass after he or she has contacted their parents. Failure to follow procedure may 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 the building. 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 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 may result in disciplinary consequences.
