Reporting Tardies

Students are expected to arrive promptly to every class- everyday.  Middle schools expect that all students will be seated and ready to learn when the bell rings.  When students arrive late to class, instruction is disrupted for all other students.

 Should your student arrive late to school for any reason, s/he must sign in at the attendance window located next to room 206 before going to class.

 When your student is late to school more than 30 minutes, we must hear from you, the parent/guardian.  You may notify us in any one of the following ways:

  • By phone call or voicemail message
  • By email
  • By parent or doctor note
  • By accompanying your student to sign in

When contacting us, please provide:

  • Name of student (with spelling of the last name)
  • Date and approximate time of arrival
  • Specific reason for tardy
  • Name of person calling and relationship to student

If your student arrives late to school without a verified excuse,

  • 1-2 Unexcused Tardies = Pass to class
  • 3rd Unexcused Tardies = Parent notified on Friday afternoon
    • Student will serve 1 lunch detention the following week
  • If pattern continues, AP will contact parent for SART meeting
  • Tardies are taken into account on a weekly basis
