    Tardy Policy
    Students are expected to arrive to school and to class on time. Tardiness is defined as not being inside the assigned classroom when the tardy bell rings. When the tardy bell rings teachers will close their doors, and hall sweeps will be conducted. Students arriving at school after 8:20 must enter the front (Main) Entrance and report to the attendance office to sign in and get a tardy pass.
