WMS TARDY NOTICE
It is extremely important that your student is on time to school, each and every day. Any student arriving after 8:15AM is considered tardy. A tardy is UNEXCUSED unless the proper documentation such as a doctor’s note is provided. When a student is late to school, it causes a disruption to their school day and to the classroom. Students who are consistently late to school are establishing bad punctuality habits. Furthermore, several studies have shown that school tardiness has a negative impact on learning outcomes. On the other hand, coming to school on time each day benefits students’ academic performance and future professional habits. Students who arrive at school early have an advantage over classmates who come in after class has begun.
As we move into the 2nd quarter, the middle school will be enforcing the district policy on tardiness to school. The policy states, “Any student arriving after 8:15AM is considered tardy. Tardy students are to bring a signed note from their parent/guardian and report to the office to sign in. A pass must be obtained before going to class.”
The consequences for having unexcused tardies are as follows:
After 3 Unexcused tardies, a WARNING LETTER will be sent home. After the fourth unexcused tardy to school, a detention or Friday School will be given.
Thanks in advance for your support,
