Tardy & Truancy Policies
Tardy Policy
Tardies to school will only be excused if a student went to the doctor, dentist, or had a court appearance. This excuse must be on official stationary signed by the appropriate profession- al. Failure to serve OC detention will result in either an On Campus Suspension or possible suspension from school for excessive no shows.
  1. Tardy sweeps will be done periods 1, 2, 3, between 4a and 4b, 5 and 6.
  2. When the tardy bell rings, teachers lock their door; students not in class are to report to the attendance windows to receive a tardy slip and after school detention for that day only. Students with no ID will receive 2 lunch detentions.
  3. The tardy slip will be time-stamped. NOTE: Teachers will need to change the absence to tardy.
  4. Failure to arrive at the class within the 7 minute time limit from the time stamped, will result in an additional lunch detention. Teachers will write a referral and forward to the appropriate administrator.
  5. Students will report to the detention room after school with their tardy/detention slip. Failure to arrive on time to the detention will result in an OCS assignment.
  6. Students who fail to follow the rules of detention will be given a one day on-campus suspension.
  7. Students who are more than 30 minutes late are considered truant and will be marked absent accordingly. Students will need to bring a note signed by a parent or guardian excusing the tardy within the 3 day time limit.
  8. All students are expected to leave campus within 15 minutes after their last class. Those remaining on campus will be given an after school detention for the next day. Those in after school tutoring will report directly to the classroom.
  9. First no show to after school detention = One day of on- campus suspension the following day. Second no show after school detention = Two days of on- campus suspension the following day. Third no show after school detention = One day suspension.

Truancy Policy
Students who are habitually truant will be placed on an Attendance Contract, and referred to the School Attendance Review Board (SARB). Please see the Sequential Discipline Guide in the back of district handbook.
