Students are expected to report to each class with the necessary books and materials at the scheduled time.  Teachers may assign students to Penalty Period for excessive tardiness, to make up time for unexcused absences, and failure to complete homework on time.  Make up-time will increase with repeat offenders.

Students who are tardy first period must report to the office to get a pass. After 3 tardies, students will be assigned to 15 minute penalty period.  Make up time will increase with the 4th and 5th tardy to 30 minutes.   After 6 tardies, ISS will be issued for each tardy.  This will be on a semester basis. If students fail to sign back in through the office, they will be counted absent for the remainder of the day or until they sign in.  Students will be recorded as absent instead of tardy if they arrive to class 20 minutes after the start of the period. 

When students are unexcused but arrive before the end of the second period of the day,  they will receive a 30-minute detention for the first violation. Any further occurrences of unexcused tardiness during the semester will result in an ISS.  If the student arrives after the end of the 2nd period the student will receive ISS.
