Late arrivals after 7:45 AM require a note signed by a parent or guardian explaining a reason. Tardy students may not enter first period without a pass. A student who arrives to school after 7:45 AM may not participate in athletic practices or contests or attend a co-curricular unless that tardy is excused.
If a student accumulates 10 tardies in a term, the school will contact the parents/guardians by letter and/or telephone.
If a student accumulates 15 tardies in a term, the student will be placed on Social Probation for a period of 4 weeks. Parking privileges will be revoked during this time, if applicable.
TARDY TO SCHOOL AFTER 10:55 A.M. IS CONSIDERED AN ABSENCE FROM SCHOOL. STUDENTS DISMISSED PRIOR TO THE 10:55 A.M. WILL BE NOTED AS ABSENT/DISMISSED.
Only three (3) unexcused absences are allowed per term. A student who accumulates six (6) or more unexcused absences in a semester will fail their half year courses with an Attendance Failure. If a student has more than twelve (12) unexcused absences in a year, they will receive no credit for their full year courses. If you have more than three (3) absences, please come to the main office and start a “Buy Back”. Remember, keeping track of attendance is the student’s responsibility. Students can use two “Buy Backs” per term.
