Fraser High School Pilot Tardy Policy

Dear parents and guardians,


We understand that transitioning back to school has been challenging for students and parents alike. We have provided grace to our students up to this point in regards to tardiness to class. In order to curb the excessive tardiness at Fraser High School, we will be piloting a new Tardy Policy beginning on December 6th, 2021.


The new policy will require students to scan in for all extracurricular activities. If a student has more than 3 tardies the previous week, they will be ineligible to participate in extracurricular activities, attend after school events, and scan out of SMART and Hybrid Classes.


We will be tracking tardies once a student arrives at school. Therefore, we will not count tardiness for 1st or 6th blocks. Tardies will be counted for blocks 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10.


It is imperative that students have their Student ID's in order to scan into practices, games, SMART and Hybrid Classes. If a student has lost their ID, they may get a new one for free - one time only in the Media Center. We will also have a few stations set up in the Media Center for students to check their attendance throughout the week. It will be the responsibility of the students to check their status prior to attending an after school activity. Coaches and those checking students' status will not be permitted to allow students to participate or attend an event if they have more than 3 tardies.


We hope that you will have a conversation with your students about the importance of being on time to class. We will be reviewing this policy prior to launching on December 6th. We will also run reports starting on November 29th in order to have conversations with those students that have more than 3 tardies.


Thank you for your continued support,


Ryan D. Sines, Ed.S.

Fraser High School Principal
