During Passing Periods (Middle School) When a student is late to class they miss vital information that is critical to their ability to succeed. Tardiness is also a very disruptive element in class and negatively impacts others’ learning. Students are expected to be in their seats or work area before the late bell sounds. Tardies will result in lunch detention. Students receiving 5 tardies will receive On Campus Retention and after 10 tardies, the student will receive a 1 day suspension.
