Tardy Policy

Tardy Policy

Students will be regarded as tardy if they are not in their assigned classroom prior to the tardy bell ringing.  If a student is determined to be tardy by their assigned teacher they will be directed to immediately report to the attendance office.  The student’s tardy will be recorded and they receive a pass to class. Any student 15 minutes or more tardy will be marked “Very Late” (Y) in PowerSchool. All teachers will use the guidelines of the school-wide tardy policy.  Tardy totals begin new each semester. 

 

 

The school-wide tardy policy is as follows:

  • 1st Tardy:  Warning issued
  • 2nd Tardy: Warning issued
  • 3rd thru 9th Tardy: Student is given a detention form and assigned a 30 minute detention.  Parents will be notified.  The time can be served at lunch or after school in the Intervention Room.  Students have 5 school days from the date assigned to complete their time.  If a student does not serve the assigned time during the 5 days they will owe 60 minutes. 
  • 10th Tardy: Student will be assigned to the Intervention Room to serve 1 day of In School Suspension.  The Intervention Room instructor will obtain academic work and provide intervention for the ongoing issue.  The student will enter into a contract that states that each additional tardy may result in a loss of privileges at NHS.
  • 11th Tardy: Meeting with parents and student will be scheduled.
  • 12th plus Tardy: Consequences from steps 3-9 with twice the amount of detention time to be served.
