Students who are late jeopardize their own success and disrupt others. Students are late for school if they are not in first period class by 8:55 a.m. when the bell rings. Students who arrive at school after 8:55 a.m. are to go directly to class.
In-between classes, there is 5 minutes travel time; if students arrive after that time, they will be marked late by the teacher in the class attendance records. Teachers will direct the late student to the office for an admit slip.
Teachers’ responses to student lateness may include:
- making up missed time/detention
- contacting parent/guardian
- referring students to administration (Vice-Principal)
