    Note: Citizenship grades are up to the discretion of the teacher for all tardies. Teachers may take into consideration the number of tardies, how many have been made up, etc.

Tardies are an ongoing problem. "On time" means in class, seated, and ready to work. If a student has a bathroom emergency s/he should tell the teacher in the previous class and get a pass OR check in with the next period teacher and ask for a bathroom pass. A good majority of tardies are at the beginning of the day and right after lunch. Remember, in order to participate in semester, end-of-the-year activities, and/or 8th grade promotion ceremonies, students may not have two or more "U"s on your semester progress report. Tardies will be counted toward citizenship grades.
