What is the school's tardy policy?

We consider a student tardy when he/she is not in class by the time the tardy bell has rung. After three (3) tardies in one class, the student will be referred to the office for discipline. Arriving more than five minutes late counts as an absence. The consequences are:

  • Three (3) tardies in the same class—1 day After-School Detention, parent notification
  • Four (4) tardies in the same class—1 day In-School Suspension, parent notification
  • Five (5) tardies in the same class—2 days ISS, parent notification
  • Six (6) or more tardies in the same class—3 days ISS, Class IV Violation, parent notification
  • After-School Detention: 2:45 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. / In-School Suspension: 8:00 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.

Students must have a pass from a school staff member for a tardy to be considered excused.
