Reminder About Tardies

Doors open at 7:15. Class instruction starts at 7:35. All children are expected to be in the classroom at this time. A student is tardy if they are not in the classroom by 7:45. You should report an absence by calling 817-251-5700. If the child goes to the doctor/dentist, we need a note. If your child is sick but you didn't go to the doctor, then we need a written note from you explaining the absence. You may also email Connie.hessling@gcisd.net, our data secretary. Even a little time away from the classroom affects your child's learning. Students will serve a detention after being tardy on 5 occasions. Every subsequent tardy within the nine weeks will result in a detention. If a child comes to school late with a doctor’s note, that is a tardy that will not count against them. Tardy detention will be held on Thursdays from 7:15-7:35 with Mrs. Torres, Assistant Principal. Dove’s policy is in accordance with the information presented in the Student-Parent Handbook and Student

Code of Conduct. Upon a child’s 5th tardy, the parent will be notified in writing

of the child’s upcoming assignments to before-school detention. After a child

has served two detentions, the parents will be contacted by the principal and

notified of the consequences for “repeated instances.”
