A student is tardy when he/she arrives in the classroom after the
tardy bell rings but before the first thirty minutes of the class has
been completed. A student is habitually tardy to a class when he/she
receives three (3) or more unexcused tardies per trimester.
School personnel will consider the circumstances and reasons for each
student tardy and determine whether the tardy is excused or unexcused.
Excused tardiness is understandable. Parents are encouraged to schedule appointments after school hours or later in the school day if at all possible.
The student will be expected to
make up work missed without penalty. Unexcused tardiness is
inappropriate and may result in disciplinary consequences.
