Tardy and Late Sign-In
 

Tardiness

Student success is directly related to maintaining good attendance patterns at school.

Administrators, proctors, teachers, students and parents must work together to ensure that

students are present and on time to each class of the day. Only by working together will we be

able to change a culture of tardiness. While there will be consequences for being tardy, there

must also be support by each person in our school community to make sure that students get to

class on time.

 

Consequences for arriving late to class include:

Elementary

3rd tardy - Letter sent home from Attendance Office

6th tardy - Letter sent home from Attendance Office and 25 minutes IN SCHOOL DETENTION

9th tardy - Letter sent home from Attendance Office and 25 minutes IN SCHOOL DETENTION

Late Sign-In

 

Elementary

·      Students in grades TK-5 arriving after the start of school, but not more than 30 minutes late, shall proceed straight to their class and will be marked as tardy.

·      A parent note from a parent must be present at time of sign-in and state on the sign-in sheet a valid excuse (see below) for that tardy to be excused.

·      Student arriving more than 30 minutes late are considered truant and must sign into the attendance office in The Technology Building to change the truancy to a tardy.

 

Middle School & High School

1.     Students in grades 6-12 arriving after the start of school must check into the attendance office in the Technology Building before proceeding to class

In order for a tardy to be excused, either a note from a parent/guardian must be provided or a parent/guardian must be present at the time of sign-in and state a valid excuse on the sign-in sheet (see list below).

2.     Once signed in, the student will receive a tardy slip and may then proceed to their assigned classroom.

 

Acceptable excuses for late arrival are:

a. Illness

b. Visitation to a medical office, clinic, doctor or dentist (note required from office)

c. Funeral of an immediate family member

d. Quarantine of the home

e. All other excuses are not acceptable and will result in an unexcused tardy


Passing Periods

·       Students with more than one instructor are expected to quickly move between classes so they are in their seat when the tardy bell rings.

·       Only a staff member can excuse tardiness.

·       A student with an excused tardy will present the valid tardy slip that is dated and signed by a staff member. If the student does not have a signed slip, they will be given an unexcused tardy regardless of the verbal excuse provided by the student.
