What do I need to do if my child will be absent from school?

Please notify the school office before 8:30 a.m. on any day your child will not be in attendance, and by 7:45 a.m. if your child will be late. You may leave a message on the office voicemail at any time. Please call us as early as possible so we know your child is safe. For information about attendance requirements and what qualifies as an excused absence, please refer to the student handbook.

Do you enforce a dress code at Elgin Elementary School?

We expect our students to dress appropriately in neat and clean attire at all times. The Elgin School Dress Code Policy has three objectives:

  • To give all students individuality and self-expression in dress
  • To give parents clear guidelines that are fair
  • To give educators clear guidelines that are easy to interpret

Students must always wear clothing that depicts school-appropriate pictures, messages, symbols, or lettering. Students may not wear gang-affiliated clothing, deemed such by local law enforcement officials. There can be no depictions of sex, alcohol, tobacco, drugs, weapons, or obscenities. Please be sure you’re familiar with the details by reading the student handbook.

Will my child have access to the internet while on campus?

Yes, we're happy that Elgin School students have many opportunities to use the internet to accomplish educational goals. They understand that with the freedom to use the internet comes the responsibility to use it wisely, and they sign the agreement found in the student handbook before they can use the internet at school.

How can I get more involved?

We strongly encourage your involvement. Please take the time to introduce yourself to your child’s teacher and let him or her know that you’re interested in getting involved. We also invite you to join the PTC and make your voice heard! Parents can also support their child’s education in some basic ways, including:

  • Encouraging your child to get plenty of sleep 
  • Offering a healthy diet, including a good breakfast (or getting your child to school early enough to eat breakfast in our cafeteria)
  • Helping your child get up in plenty of time for school
  • Providing neat, clean, comfortable clothes
