Tardy Policy

  • The instructional day begins at 7:40 a.m. Students are expected to be in seats ready to engage in the instructional program by 7:45 a.m. Tardiness to school is considered a characteristic of a student who is not college-ready.
  • To provide our students with the best possible education, each Alliance campus has adopted aTolerate No Tardies(TNT) Policy. Students and parents are expected to plan their time effectively in order for students to arrive to class on time at 7:40 a.m. It is our belief that each child should be entitled to maximum instructional time each day, each period; therefore a tardy policy is implemented which supports and reinforces our school’s mission.
morning tardies
Morning Tardies
  • Under the Tolerate No Tardies Policy a student who arrives at school after 7:45 a.m. is considered tardy. The following consequences are in place for tardiness:
  • Students are not allowed to interrupt the class period in session and will be chaperoned in a tardy tank.
  • 1 - 2 days tardy = Automated Wake-up Call Home
  • 3 days tardy = Parent Conference
  • 4 - 5 days tardy = Parent Conference & Time Management Plan
  • 6 days tardy = CLASS PERIOD REMOVED & Probation Contract (2 weeks)
  • 7 days tardy = Alternate Academic Plan

  • All teachers monitor and record when students are tardy after nutrition, lunch, and between classes.
  • 1st & 2nd classroom tardy= Warning
  • 3rd classroom tardy = Break and/or Lunch Detention with the Teacher
