Tardy and Absences A student who is tardy is a disruptive to the class and prevent a student from receiving excellent academic instruction when he/she misses time being in the classroom The only acceptable excuse for tardiness is illness, weather or road conditions (including accidents) that make travel dangerous, or unusually slow. A student who has three tardy will constitute one absence.

1. When a student returns after an absence, he must bring a note from the parent stating the reason for the absence. Absences of three days duration or longer, due to an illness, need a doctor’s note to be excused.
2. Parents will be contacted in the event of excessive tardies or absences. More than eight absences in a semester will disqualify a student from receiving credit for that semester’s work.
3. State Law requires students to have no more than eight absences per semester. If a student exceeds this he may be required to attend Saturday School at a cost of $50.00 per Saturday. Saturday School will be held as needed and will be from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Students must bring a sack lunch.
4. Tardy to classes other than first period may be treated as a disciplinary problem.
