Forgetting something in your locker is not an acceptable excuse for being tardy.Remember, just because you have a locker it doesn’t mean you have to use it every period. Know what you need, when you need it, and how you’re going to have it with you when you get to class.
6 What is a tardy?Tardy, as defined in the Code of Student Conduct (p. 6) “is defined as an arrival to class after the designated starting time or the tardy signal has sounded.”An excused tardy requires a pass from a teacher, administrator, or other staff member. Without a pass the tardy is unexcused.
7 Consequences for tardiness On the 4th unexcused tardy of the nine weeks, your parent/guardian will be called and you will be issued an after school detention.A phone call to your parent/guardian anddetention will be issued for the 5th, 6th, 7th unexcused tardy.A discipline referral will be written on the 8th unexcused tardy.
