Thornton Township High Schools District 205

Preparing all District 205 Students to be Competitive Leaders in our Global Society

Attendance Centers

The Illinois School Code requires that all students attend school every day it is in session unless legally excused. The educational program offered by District 205 is predicated on the presence of the student and requires continuity of instruction and classroom participation. Any absence from school requires the parent or guardian to contact the Attendance Center at the school the student attends by 1:00 P.M. Excused absences are: personal illness,  medical appointments, unsafe travel conditions, approved religious observance, quarantine, required court appearances, approved college visits, military obligations, late bus, school sponsored field trips, school endorsed, but non-school sponsored activities with a bona fide educational purpose and a direct relationship to the student’s current course schedule.
