Late to School

If a student arrives late to school between 7:40 and 7:55 am, they will report to their class and their teacher will record their late. All students arriving late to school after 7:55 am or leaving early must check in and out with the attendance secretary. Parents must contact the attendance office when the student is going to be late. After 7:55 am the student will be considered truant and cutting a class. A student may not come to school for a single class or to take a test and then leave. Violation of this rule will result in an F grade

on the test. A student missing an announced test, quiz or assessment because of tardiness will receive a grade of F unless a parent calls in by 7:55am and the absence is a Driver’s Test, Religious Holiday or Court Appearance.

Any student entering school after 9:30 AM or leaving prior to 12:30 PM may not participate in any extra-curricular or co-curricular activities (any sport, or club or prom, etc.). Students who are in school for any part of the day are required to complete the work, including examinations, in the classes that they attend. If a student is truant, they may not make up the work missed.

parent does not call them in by 7:55 AM, the student will be considered truant and a zero will be entered for the assessment.
