Students are expected to be to class on time. A warning bell will be provided prior to the final bell for each period. It is important to an individual’s education, and for the education of the entire classroom, that each student arrives on time. Excessive tardiness may result in a teacher’s referral to the discipline office.
Truancy is defined as an absence from class or school without prior knowledge or consent of the parent or school personnel. A student should receive a zero (0) for any class work missed or due on the day of the truancy. In addition, when a truancy is confirmed, parents of the truant student will be contacted by the school. Sanctions for truancy are progressive.
