    CHECK-IN TARDINESS TO SCHOOL

    A student who arrives late to school (after 8:00 a.m.) must check-in using the computer in the Main Office and get a pass before he/she goes to his/her locker and class. 

    TARDINESS TO SCHOOL AND TO CLASS

    Students are expected to be on time for school in each of their classes. They will be considered tardy to school and class if they are not in their classroom when class is scheduled to begin. Tardiness will also be considered when the teacher determines a student’s citizenship mark.

    Consequences for students who accumulate the following number of unexcused tardies per marking period and class will be as follows:

    1st tardy:  Warning

    2nd tardy:  Phone call to parents from teacher

    3rd tardy:  Meeting with counselor to develop a plan and phone call to parents

    4th tardy:  Lunch detention

    5th tardy:  After school detention 

    6th tardy:  Referral to administration

    Subsequent tardies: Discipline may include but is not limited to in-school suspension, loss of passing time, or additional lunch/after school detentions.

    Students who arrive to class late because a teacher kept them after class should have a pass from that teacher.
