Many of our students have been arriving late to school. Students are counted tardy if they arrive after 8:15. Please make a goal for your student to arrive closer to 8:05. Students are dismissed from the gym at this time. By arriving earlier, your student can begin his/her day with other classmates. Arriving after the gym has been dismissed puts them behind the others who have already started their daily routine. Five unexcused tardies counts as one unexcused absence.
