Absences at District 97 elementary schools were "higher than normal" on the Monday preceding Election Day on April 4, according to district officials, who attributed the absences to families that may have extended their spring break by a few more days.

Numerous Oak Park schools, including Beye, Brooks, Julian and Longfellow, function as polling places on Election Day and were closed to students that day. Recently, more and more schools across the country have decided to close on Election Day due to security concerns, thereby making the Sunday nights of many students a little less dreadful and filling their Monday mornings with bliss.
