Punctuality is essential for successful student performance. Students will be marked tardy if they are not in their seats when the bell rings. General traffic tie-ups are not considered excused tardies.
As elementary students depend on their parents to ensure that they arrive to school on time and ready for class, if there are excessive tardies, a meeting with the parents will be required.
For middle and high school students, the consequences for excessive tardies are as follows:
- Every third tardy in a particular class will count as an unexcused absence
- At the sixth tardy per quarter in all classes, the student will serve a Saturday detention
- At the twelfth tardy per quarter in all classes, the student will serve a one day in-school suspension
- At the fifteenth tardy for the quarter, the student will serve a two or three day in-school suspension and a meeting will be required with parents
- A tardy longer than 15 minutes will also be determined an absence.
