Tardy Policy:

In light of our school’s current academic standing and the need for accelerated instruction, your commitment to attending classes on time is of utmost importance. Punctuality is a crucial aspect of creating a positive and focused learning environment. Therefore, we have implemented a revised tardy policy to reinforce the importance of being on time for class. The policy is as follows:

  1. First Tardy - Verbal Warning
  2. Second Tardy - Verbal Warning and Parent Contact
  3. Third Tardy - After School Detention (1 day)*
  4. Fourth Tardy - After School Detention (2 days)*
  5. Fifth Tardy - After School Detention (3 days)*
  6. Sixth Tardy - In-School Suspension
  7. Seventh Tardy - Overnight Suspension Pending Parent Conference
  8. Eighth Tardy and Beyond - Alternate Disciplinary Consequences at the Discretion of the Administrator

*After school detention will be held Monday-Thursday from 4:30 pm until 5:30 pm in the library concurrent with after-school tutorials. Failure to report to the after-school detention will result in an overnight suspension pending parent conference.

ELECTRONICS POLICY

All electronics must be turned off and not visible during the school day. Any electronic visible or that disturbs the learning environment, WILL BE CONFISCATED AND GIVEN A $15.00 FINE. Confiscated cell phones and other electronics may only be picked up after school by a parent or legal guardian on file. Parents or legal guardians must provide an ID in order to receive the phone.
