Tardy and Cell Phone Policies
Students who are tardy to class will receive three warnings per block. A student is tardy to class if he or she arrives to the class after the tardy bell. A parent will be contacted by the classroom teacher after the third tardy. After the three warnings are used, if a student is tardy to class, an office referral will be made to each subsequent tardy.
Five unexcused tardies will result in one (1) absence. The teacher will record this absence as an “Absence by Tardy.” Each time an “Absence by Tardy” occurs, the absence will count in the eight (8) allowed absences. If a student arrives to class more than 10 minutes after the tardy bell without an excused note, the student will receive an unexcused tardy AND a discipline referral for skipping class.
First Offense – The student will be provided a warning by the classroom teacher.
Second Offense – The device will be confiscated and turned into the AP Office; student may pick up the device at the end of the school day.
Third Offense – The device will be confiscated and turned into the AP Office; parent is notified and may pick up the device at the end of the school day.
All Others – ISS/OSS; Parent is notified and they may pick up the device at the end of the day.
Refusal of a student to abide by school board policy JFC-R will result in OSS.
