Message from the Principal - Mr. Zumstein

Greetings Aztecs!


Hopefully you have received and reviewed our Tardy Intervention Plan. We will hold tardy sweeps throughout this week. Administration and teachers will be outside encouraging students to get to class on time. We hope that parents can support our "Be on time, all of the time!" movement. Together, we can ensure our students understand the importance of being prompt and ready to learn.


We wish everyone a wonderful week as we head towards our fall break.


We are Aztecs!

New Tardy Intervention Plan- Be On Time, All The Time

This message is to inform you about our plan to address the issue of class tardiness. In July, our Assistant Principals presented to students what it means to be an Aztec. Our motto is "We are Aztecs!" One of the expectations of being an Aztec is to "Be on time, all the time!"


Beginning Monday, September 12, we will implement an Aztec Tardy Intervention Plan that will run for the entire week. Administrators will assign progressive interventions to tardy students during random periods each day. The interventions may take place during lunch, after school and on Saturday, September 17.


Chronically tardy students put their academic success at risk and disrupt the learning environment for others. Being on time shows respect for self, peers, the teacher and being an Aztec. "Be on time, all the time!", is the first step in being ready to learn.


Students, as Aztecs, we expect you to get to class on time and ready to learn by the time the tardy bell rings. Parents, we ask that you team up with us and discuss with your children the expectation of being on time. As a Montgomery community let us work together to communicate the importance of being on time. “We are Aztecs!”

Attendance Information

Students can clear absences and tardies by attending Saturday School. Students are placed on the non-privilege list when they have eight full day absences or eleven tardies. The non-privilege list prevents students from attending events like Homecoming or Grad Nite.


Saturday School Guidelines

Be on time. Gates close/no entry after 8:00 am

Bring work or laptop. No phones should be used during Saturday School.

Students are not allowed to leave campus during the break (i.e. to go off campus for food, coffee, etc.)
