Once the bell rings marking the first period of the day (7:40 am), any student who arrives after that point must report to the office with a written excuse from home, otherwise, it will be counted as an unexcused absence. Between classes, students have passing time to go from one class to the next.  If a student is not inside the classroom when the bell marking the beginning of the period rings, he or she is late.  Teachers will address tardiness in the classroom on a case-by-case basis.  In cases of chronic tardiness the teachers will notify the parents and refer to the Administration for disciplinary action. After lunch, tardies are subject to administrative action which include, but not be limited to detention or chronic cases suspension.
