Tardy Policy

The tardy bell rings at 7:40 AM. Any student that is not in their 1st period class at this time will be marked tardy.

Parents are encouraged to not check their children in except for legitimate, excused reasons. All students who check in must sign in at the main office before going to class. Those checking in after 8:00 a.m. must be accompanied by a parent or notify the school by phone before the child reports to class. Students checking in with medical excuses are not required to be signed in by the parent. A written excuse must be provided for check-ins to be considered excused.

Note: Three unexcused check-ins or check-outs will be considered as one unexcused absence counted toward the truancy program.

A student will be assigned to After-School Detention if he/she is tardy to one class four times in a nine-week period. After two times in After-School Detention, the student will be assigned a day of In-School Correction in they are tardy four times again.
