It is a reasonable expectation that in order for learning to exist, each student must arrive to school on time.
Students who are tardy excessively from the instructional program will fall behind in academic achievement. A student, who is tardy to school, not only places his/her own learning in jeopardy, but also interrupts the learning of other students. Students are considered tardy if they are not in their classroom by the 8:00 am bell.
The following steps will be followed should students be tardy to school for unexcused reasons:
|5||Contact home made by classroom teacher (Note/Documentation)|
|10||Considered Chronic problem/Phone call from School Social Worker to schedule conference|
|15||Letter from principal sent home concerning excessive tardiness|
|15+||Principal notifies Director of Student Services/ Social Services/ School Resource Officer|
If the student is late to school, he/she is to bring a note from a parent (or call) explaining the reason for tardiness and report to the office to get a tardy slip. Please refer to the Student Handbook for more information regarding the Tardy Policy.
