Hello Spring Brook Parents –
Attendance and Tardy Reminder
Thanks to all who have been making it into school before the last morning bell. Just a reminder that students should be in their classrooms by 9:05 a.m. (9:15 a.m. on Wednesdays) in order to avoid being issued a tardy slip. Students arriving after the 9:05 a.m. bell (9:15 a.m. on Wednesdays) will be given a tardy slip as they enter the building and marked tardy for the day. After the front door closes, a parent or guardian will need to escort the student into the main office and sign the student in.
If your student will be absent from school, please call the Spring Brook Attendance Line at 630.428.6610 either in advance of your student's absence or before school hours on the day of your student's absence. If your child will be absent due to illness, we ask that you please report any flu-like symptoms (fever over 100 degrees, head ache, body aches, vomiting, etc).
The Indian Prairie Board of Education recognizes that regular attendance and arriving to school on time are vital to a student's success in school. Regular attendance and punctuality are essential if a student is to make use of the educational opportunities that Spring Brook School offers. We thank you in advance for your attention to your child's punctuality and regular school attendance.â€”â€”

Calling all Box Tops for Education!!
We will be wrapping up our winter Box Tops contest on January 31st. Every completed collection sheet returned to school by the 31st will be entered into a prize raffle for a chance to win a free Oberweis ice cream cone. Prizes will be awarded in February. The more sheets submitted, the more chances your child has to win. Be sure your child’s name and class is on the collection sheet, Ziploc bag, or envelope.
So far this year we’ve earned over $600 for Spring Brook! Please keep collecting Box Tops as an easy way to fundraise for our great school.
For further questions or prize donations for our next contest, please contact Amy Sullivan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
