Absent From School
It is the parents' responsibility to contact the Shorewood office at 815-577-7312 when your child will be absent from school. Please call our office before 8:35 am with your child's name, teacher's name, and the reason for the absence. Our school is equipped with voicemail, so you may call anytime, day or night, and leave a message. Our policy states that students who have not been called in by an adult will have an unexcused absence on their record.
Can I Pick Up My Child Early?
Please use the front entrance (south end of the building) when entering to pick up your children. All other doors are locked during school hours. Students will only be released from the office after you sign them out. When a student is being picked up early or at dismissal, we must have a note from the parent/guardian. We will release a student without a note only on an emergency basis. Please send a note for each student and for every pickup. If your student is a daily pickup and you have a note on file, you do not need to send a note daily. All students who leave school early are required to be signed out in the school office by a parent/guardian.
From Bus to Bus
Due to the number of students we transport daily, the district only allows students to ride the bus or van that is designated to transport them to and from their homes. Bus passes to change a bus will not be issued unless it is an extreme emergency.
