Attendance & Grades

Attendance Matters!

At the middle school level, attendance is taken during each synchronous class period (zoom classes) throughout the day.  Students must have their cameras on and their name showing throughout the zoom session.

On asynchronous days (independent learning days) students will log into the SPS 186 intranet and confirm their attendance.  Students will only need to fill it out once between the hours of 8:00am-2:30pm. This one form will count for your attendance for the entire day.  Students will then have the rest of the day to complete their assignments. Click here for more information.

Parents can expect to be contacted by teachers and the school if a student is tardy, absent, or not engaged in learning. Please contact JMS at (217) 585-5810 if your student will be absent.


Students must be completing all work that is posted on their teacher’s Canvas days for both synchronous and asynchronous days.  If you are absent (whether excused or unexcused) you are still responsible to make up the assignments on Canvas.

If you have any questions about grades, please contact the teacher or your child’s guidance dean:
