Tardy Policy Overview
Student tardiness hinders the educational process as it disrupts the teacher’s lesson, the students in the classroom, as well as the tardy student. Tardiness in college may lead to removal of a student from class. Tardiness in the workplace may lead to removal from the job. Tardiness at public high schools is a severe problem and we are committed to resolving it as an issue. Therefore, the following policy is now in place:
Teachers will keep track of all tardies.
- 4 tardies in the same class during any 6-week grading period will result in detention of 30 minutes.
- 7 tardies in the same class during any 6-week grading period will result in detention of 60 minutes.
- Un-served 30 minute detentions will result 60 minute detentions.
- Un-served 60 minute detention will result in Saturday School (4 hours).
Truant Policy Overview
Any all day absence that is not excused by a parent or guardian within the 3 day required limit will be marked as truant and the student will receive a Saturday School (4 hours).
Any single period absence (student is at school but does not attend class) will be marked as truant and the student will receive a Saturday School (4 hours). A parent must notify the attendance office before a student leaves campus for one or more periods. If a student arrives late after 30 minutes of class, it will be marked as an absence/truant.
