TARDY POLICY

A tardy is defined as being 20 minutes or less late to class and/or school.

  • A student must check into the office for each tardy and will not be admitted to class without a timed office pass, counseling center pass or pass from a teacher.
  • A lunchtime detention will be served for every unexcused tardy.
  • Students must serve their lunchtime detention within that school week.
  • Consequences for not serving lunchtime detention include, but are not limited to: Saturday School, Suspension, Campus beautification and Activities ban.

Parents we need your help! It is so important for you and your student to make sure that you are getting to school on time. When a student is late to class, often they have missed very important information, including the learning objective of the day and the homework assignment for the night. As students enter the class late, it takes away from everyone in the room.

Suggestions for getting to school on time are:

► Organize all backpacks and things that need to come back to school the night before and set by the front door.

► Choose the clothing you will wear and have it ready to go the night before.

► Have a family plan for sharing the bathroom. Perhaps some family members can bathe the night before.

► Set a bedtime that will allow for a good night sleep and ability to wake up when the alarm goes off. No pulling the covers over your head!

► At this age, students should have an alarm clock of their own. Parents should assist in waking up the student(s).

► If you drive your student(s) to school, please leave early enough to allow for possible delays. We are here at 7:15AM!

► If your child is staying up at night, remove temptation. Young people should not have access to cell phones, TV, and computers in their bedrooms if it is interfering with falling asleep.

Thank you so much for paying attention to this important issue and helping to get your student to school on time. Remember, we are helping them to learn a valuable skill. Being late to school is like being late to work.
