Tardy Policy

Students should arrive at school no earlier than 7:45 am and no later than 8:15 am. Students arriving after the second bell at 8:15 am are considered tardy and must report to the office for a tardy slip before going to class. Pursuant to Fla. Stat. Section 232.25:

  • Tardy students cause disruption to classes and often miss vital morning directions.
  • Habitual tardiness is a violation of the ORANGE COUNTY CODE OF STUDENT CONDUCT.
  • For truancy purposes, 5 unexcused tardies will equal 1 unexcused absence.
  • Frequent absences or tardiness will result in consequences outlined in the code booklet.
  • Perfect Attendance will include ZERO absences and ZERO tardies.
