Tardies & Unexplained Absences


    • The first unexcused tardy is a warning. The second and subsequent tardiness result in an after-school detention to be served in the detention room or with the teacher and a call will be made to parents.  Failure to attend detention may be referred to the appropriate administrator.


    • Work missed due to an unexplained absence may only be made up within the guidelines set forth by each teacher.  You may be denied make-up privileges.
    • Parents have 24 hours to call and explain an absence, with the exception of single-hour absences. If a student misses a single hour during the day, the excuse must be cleared prior to the hour of absence.
    • A single unexcused absence will result in the consequence of an extended detention (Tuesday or Thursday). A full-day unexcused absence will result in the consequence of 2 to 3 extended detentions (Tuesday or Thursday).  Repeated unexcused absences may result in a short-term assignment to In-School Suspension and/or a behavior contract.

    • "O" Outstanding Citizenship …….0 unexcused absences
    • "S" Satisfactory Citizenship……...0 unexcused absences
    • "I" Needs Improvement…………...1 unexcused absence
