A tardy to school happens when the student arrives after 8:55am. Even if your student is one minute late, it will be counted as a tardy. A "reverse tardy" policy is also being implemented district wide this year. If a student leaves before 3:20pm (elementary schools), they will be marked tardy as well. Once a student accumulates their 6th tardy, reverse tardy, or combination of the two, they will be issued an after school detention.
