Tardy Policy

  • Teachers will document each tardy a student accumulates and the Attendance Office will track tardies and assign appropriate consequence.
    A student is considered tardy if he/she is not seated in his /her desk. Illness, doctor's appointment, family funeral, or school activity can be considered an excused tardy. Any other reason is considered an unexcused tardy. If a student is reporting to school late, he/she must report to the Attendance Office. To be excused:

    The attendance clerk must receive a note or a phone call from a parent/guardian that meets the above criteria
    The student must sign in, and the attendance clerk will issue a time-stamped tardy pass to the student.
    Habitual tardies subjects the student to a referral, parent conference and Behavior Contract, and possible restriction of privileges, suspension, transfer, or expulsion.
