Consequences of tardy policy include 90-minute detentions

There is a new tardy policy in place with four different levels of procedure.
The first three tardies are handled by the teacher. Upon a fourth tardy, the student will be sent to the office with referral sheets to hand to the office.
A 90-minute Thursday school (7:30-9 a.m. or 3-4:30 p.m.) will be assigned.
A second referral to the office will result in a Saturday school and parents will be contacted.
In the event of a third and fourth referral, students will be assigned an ISS or other comparable consequence and parents will be contacted.
There is a scanning system for first- and second-hour tardies only. The system will log in each tardy instead of the teacher.
“We are trying to maximize class time by making sure kids are in class,” said Brett Potts, Assistant Principal for Curriculum and Instruction. “It’s too early to tell if it’s working so far but I have noticed a reduction of people in the hallways.”
Tardy counts start over at the beginning of second semester. by Christian Huesers
