Tardy Policy

Attendance to school is very important. This includes students arriving to school on time and ready to learn. When students arrive late to school they miss out on learning and are disrupting the class when entering the classroom late. Students are considered to tardy if they arrive to school after 8:40 a.m. Listed below is our schools sequence of consequences for chronic tardiness. Students will begin each nine weeks with zero tardies. Please note that your child will be given a slip to take home after the first and second incident.
