When to keep the student home from school?  
Daily attendance is encouraged for all grade levels.  However,  students who are ill should be kept home for the day.  Students who vomit or run a fever need to be symptom-free (without fever medicine) 24 hours before returning to school.  Please contact the school when your child is absent from school.  

Call the attendance line for any absence at Butterfield:

Please include the student's name, teacher, guardian name and reason for the absence. Please let us know if your child has a fever. Requests for homework should be emailed to teachers. If you need to speak with the school nurse, please call the school’s main number: (847) 362-3120.
