School Tardy Policy
A new school-wide tardy policy went into effect with the start of the new semester Jan 3rd. The policy is the product of a work group of representatives based on feedback from faculty and staff. Class meetings were held to review the expectations of the policy with students, which includes a set of defined consequences, but also a positive reinforcement program highlighting our students who are succeeding in coming to class on time and having good attendance.
