Tardy to School

Middle School Handbook

A student is tardy if he/she arrives to homeroom/school after the 7:40 AM bell. If a student is late for school or late for homeroom, he/she should report to Attendance/Student Services Office with his/her note and sign the clipboard. A tardy is deemed excused only if it is a family emergency or an illness. Unexcused tardiness will be recorded. On the tenth tardy and, for each subsequent tardy, the student will receive one office detention.

If a tardy student whether late to school or late to homeroom fails to sign in properly he/she could remain recorded as absent from school and consequently receive an unlawful absence.
