9. What are the school attendance policies for tardies?
When students are tardy to a class, they must go to the front office and request a tardy pass. A tardy without approved documentation (medical note, emergency) is considered unexcused. A classroom tardy occurs when a student is not present in the classroom when the bell rings. Tardies due to extreme weather or confirmed traffic issues may also be excused. Students with excessive tardies to the same class risk losing credit for that particular class.
Parents/guardians may notify the office of early morning tardiness in the following ways:
- A phone call from the parent/guardian to the front office (512-388-8846)
- Direct email to the Assistant Principal or the Front Office by 9:00 AM
- In-person notification on the school premises
Families are to provide tardiness documentation to the office within two school days of the day of the tardy:
- Signed letter of explanation from the parent delivered to the office
- Signed notes or letters from an office or official either hand-delivered or faxed (512-388-1355) to the office
