Tardy Policy

Good attendance is critical to academic achievement. The school is responsible for working with each student and his/her family to encourage excellent school attendance. For this purpose we are implementing a new tardy policy.

Lunch Intervention

Each tardy that needs to be made up will take the entire lunch period.  Students will receive a note before lunch indicating they are required to attend lunch intervention.  Students will get their lunch and meet in the designated room to eat lunch.  Students are required to bring homework with them to lunch intervention or they will be provided with an alternate assignment.
