Tardy Policy Reminder

Wednesday, Jul 12, 2023

As we gear up for the upcoming academic year, I wanted to take this opportunity to inform you about an important change to our school's tardy policy, which will be implemented starting the third week of school on August 28, 2023.

We firmly believe that developing the habit of being punctual is a crucial skill that can significantly benefit our students. Arriving on time to school sets a positive example for their future endeavors and demonstrates your commitment to their education. Most importantly, it allows our classrooms to run smoothly, reducing interruptions and distractions for all students.

To ensure the effectiveness of our new tardy policy, I have made the decision to re-institute the requirement of having parents or guardians park their vehicles and physically sign their child into school when arriving after 8:00 am. The vestibule adjacent to the main office has been designated as the tardy reception area, where you will be able to complete the sign-in process.

We understand that this may require an adjustment to your morning routine. Still, we firmly believe that this change will positively impact your child's punctuality and overall school experience.

Please take note of the following key details regarding the new tardy policy.

We kindly request your cooperation in adhering to the new tardy policy. By working together, we can instill the importance of punctuality in our students and create an optimal learning environment for all.

Should you have any questions or concerns regarding the new policy, please do not hesitate to contact the attendance office at 561-297-6612. We are here to assist you and support you during this transition.

Thank you for your understanding and commitment to your child's education. We look forward to a successful and punctual academic year ahead.

Effective Date & Time

The new tardy policy will be enforced starting August 28, 2023. Any student arriving after 8:00 am morning bell must be signed into school.

Procedure

Upon arrival after the morning bell, parents or guardians must park their vehicles and accompany their child to the main vestibule adjacent to the main office. There, you will find designated sign-in stations where you can register your child's arrival. School staff will be available to assist you during this process until 8:15 am. Past 8:15 am all students will be processed through the front office.


It is essential to ensure that your child arrives at the designated sign-in area promptly. Please allow sufficient time for parking and signing in, as classes will begin promptly after the morning 8 am bell.
