Attendance is taken in the classroom each morning at 8:00. Students arriving in the classroom after 8 a.m. are considered tardy. Students who arrive after 8 a.m. need to check in at the school office for a tardy slip. After 3 unexcused tardies in a 9-week period, students are assessed a $5 fine for each subsequent unexcused tardy. Students who are tardy because of a doctor's or dentist appointment should bring a note from the doctor’s office to have their tardiness excused.
The administration is flexible when weather is bad or when there are major traffic/accident snarls, but late is still late. The school community has been rather generous with tardy fees, having “donated” $600 thus far this year. [No, this “donation” does not count toward the $300 owed by each family.]
For those of you arriving on time: Thank you. Students who achieve perfect punctuality and/ or perfect attendance during a semester will receive special recognition.
