As noted on page 4 of the District 303 Discipline Procedures, CUSD 303 believes that regular attendance at school results in greater academic success. To meet our mutual goal for student success, we participate in a partnership and shared expectation among school, parent and student that students will be present and on time throughout each day school is in session. Further, as noted on page 5, when a student is absent without valid cause 5% (or 9) of the previous 180 regular attendance days, he/she is considered a chronic or habitual truant.
It is our goal to partner with you to support our students in building a solid foundation for their educational career. Therefore, please don't hesitate to reach out if you have concerns about the timeliness of your child's transition to school in the morning and/or his or her overall attendance at school.

Middle School Facilities
St. Charles CUSD 303 District Administration will propose a plan to the Board of Education (BoE) that will improve the District’s middle school facilities by upgrading Thompson and Wredling Middle Schools. If approved by the Board, the plan would modernize and expand Thompson and Wredling Middle Schools. When the improvements are completed in fall 2019, District Administration estimates the closing of Haines Middle School will result in an operational savings of $2.4 million per year. The estimated cost of the middle school improvements is $50 million and would be paid for through a combination of existing funds and the issue of bonds that do not require a referendum.
The Board of Education (BoE) will consider the middle school plan at the following meeting:
· Monday, November 14th, at the Board of Education (BoE) Regular Meeting, at 7:00 PM, at North High School
