Parents/Guardians

"It takes two flints to make a fire." – Louisa May Alcott
 
We are truly appreciative of the support of our Bobcat families. This page will help guide you through staying informed throughout Remote Learning and beyond. If you or your family need additional support at any time, technical or otherwise, please email us at boycp@gobobcats.org, or call the school at 773-535-7320.
 
STUDENT ATTENDANCE
Students are required to attend their daily Google Meet class sessions every period, every day according to our BELL SCHEDULE. Attendance will be taken every period and will be entered in Aspen daily. Students must be on time to class.
 
If a student is absent from a class period or an entire day:
  • The parent/guardian must call the school to report the absence: 773-535-7320
  • The student must email the teacher to communicate about their absence and make up any work missed.
