If you need to inform the school about your child's absence, please call the school at (219) 663-2287 or email our office at with the following information:

  • Child's Name
  • Child's Grade
  • Child's Teacher
  • Name of Parent/Guardian calling
  • Reason for your child's absence
  • If the absence is extended (more than one day), when you would like to pick up student work
    • We do not provide homework in advance of planned vacations during the school year.

Attendance is a top priority at Winfield Elementary.  Our students cannot grow and learn if they are not at school engaged in instruction.  We understand that our children are sometimes ill or there is an emergency, but we strongly encourage you to make sure your children are here on time, ready to go each and every school day. Please schedule appointments and vacations outside of school hours whenever possible. If you have any questions about our attendance policy, please contact the main office.
