Tardy Policy

To help our students become more successful in class, the following tardy policy will be instituted.  As always, students will have a 5-minute passing period and are expected to be in class before the bell rings. Students late to school should sign in at the attendance booth.   If they're late to class, they are to report straight to class and the teacher will record the tardy.

Tardies to class often disrupt instruction. When a student is tardy because of an office or guidance issue, the student will be given a hall pass or a tardy pass to class.  I

Unexcused tardies present a unique problem for the administration. While excessive tardies are ultimately a behavior issue, they also punish the student long-term by accumulating into too many unexcused absences and thereby causing the student to fail the class.
