Attendance Expectation Notification to Parents
Dear Parents and Guardians:
Your children, their teachers, and HC building administrators can use your help in communicating the expectation to attend school on all days school is in session.
We can help each other and value the education Hinsdale Central provides our students by requiring your child(ren) to attend school when school is in attendance and they are in good health. Teachers will NOT be adjusting the curriculum because students are not in class.
A student who cuts school will be coded, regarding attendance, as TRUANT and a teacher will allow them to make up the missed coursework but may limit the grade to a 75%.
A student will be coded, regarding attendance, as Unexcused Parent Call (UPC) when a parent calls their student out of school for a reason not approved by the Illinois State Board of Education. Our Deans' Office may request a doctor's note if the reason for the absence is illness or doctor's visit. Without a doctor's note, the student absence may be coded as an Unexcused Parent Call.
A student-athlete must attend their full schedule of classes to participate in athletics practices and / or contest for that day.
We look forward to the conversations about your child(ren) at Parent-Teacher Conferences on October 24 and 25 and please plan on sending your child to school on Thursday, October 24.
Naviance Demonstrations at Parent Teacher ConferencesIf you are attending Parent-Teacher Conferences, please plan to stop by room 161 to learn more about our college planning tool- Naviance. Counselors will be available throughout the night to demonstrate all of the great tools that are available for students to use throughout their 4 years. There are no scheduled times, so just stop by anytime during the evening.
College Application Reminders for SeniorsMany teachers are asked to write numerous letters of recommendation each year. With college application deadlines approaching, we encourage all students to touch base with the teachers that they have requested a letter from. If you did not turn in a Teacher Recommendation Request Form to each teacher, we highly recommend still doing so. The information provided in the form is helpful in the writing of the letter, as well as tracking them. A Teacher Recommendation Request Form can be found at https://d86.hinsdale86.org/domain/188.Please also be sure to send all standardized test scores (ACT and/or SAT) as soon as possible to allow them to reach schools in time for their deadlines. Scores can take several weeks to be sent!Please remember that you need to submit transcript request forms to your counselor in person AT LEAST two weeks prior to the college application deadline. If you have not already done so, please come to Counseling to make an appointment to submit your transcript request forms! Thank you!
