First bell rings at 9:16 AM and attendance is taken at 9:20 AM in the classroom. If your student will be arriving later than 9:20, they will need a note or phone call from the parent or guardian to excuse the tardy. Students must check in at the attendance window to get a pass to class. Students who accrue 4 tardies (unexcused) will have detention.
NOTE: Students who arrive on a late bus must check in at the attendance window and get a pass to class. A late bus will not count as a tardy.
