Report an Absence

  • The health and safety of our students is of the utmost importance. Accurate attendance information ensures that we can identify students who need support and, therefore, is a key component in keeping our school community safe. To ensure that the school has accurate, timely information regarding students who are absent, New Trier utilizes a centralized attendance reporting procedure through the PowerSchool Parent Portal .

    Reporting an Absence
    Go to the PowerSchool Portal . Sign in and select "Attendance Monitor" (bottom of the left side navigation bar). Click on "Report New Attendance". Enter the required information, enter an explanation and click on Submit. 

    Parents may also report an absence, late arrival, or early dismissal report by calling 847-784-2286.

    Reporting a Late Arrival or Early Dismissal
    If a student will miss a class due to a late arrival to school or an early dismissal from school, parents should follow the procedures for reporting an absence.

    Absence Due to COVID-19
    It is imperative that parents immediately contact Health Services at New Trier if their student is diagnosed with COVID-19 by calling 847-784-2110 or by emailing . Students who are diagnosed with COVID may return to school after 5 days if they show no symptoms but must wear a mask on days 6-10 to protect others, per CDC and local health guidance.
