All classes start immediately at 8:35 a.m. and students are to be in class before the bell rings. Students who are late to class, regardless of reason, disrupt the learning environment. Consequences for being late will be assigned by the classroom teacher until the student has accumulated a cumulative total of four lates. At the fourth late, consequences will be assigned by administration. The consequences for late referrals are: assignment of study halls, in-school suspension, out of school suspension, and course withdrawal.
Students who are more than 25 minutes late to class will be marked absent. When students are on the school grounds after classes have begun, they must proceed to the office to check in.
