Chronic tardiness and truancy are disruptive to both teachers and fellow students and therefore will not be tolerated.

Tardiness, whether the fault of the child or the parent, cannot be excused except for the reasons cited in policy 5100. A note from parents explaining the cause of lateness is required. Students arriving late to school will be expected to sign-in at the Attendance Office.
