  • We encourage all students to be on time (within the classroom when the bell sounds) to each of their class(es) at all times. 
  • Students are marked tardy if they arrive to class during the first 15 minutes.  
  • County policy remains enforced - 3 tardies to a single class equals 1 absence. 



  • Students are not allowed to ride a different bus without a bus pass
  • Note or phone call to the attendance office before noon so a pass can be written. Please spell the students first and last name and if sending a note provide a phone number.


Parents, please keep track of student absences, late arrivals or early dismissals during the school year.
