    STUDENT TARDY POLICY 2018-2019

     

    It is the belief of DHS that each child should be entitled to the maximum instructional time each day, each period. Therefore, a tardy policy has been implemented which supports and reinforces this philosophy. For students to acquire the knowledge and skills to become proficient, they need to be on time to each class, every day.

    Procedures: 

    • Student(s) will be allowed to enter a class if they are less than 10 minutes late and will receive a Tardy.
    • If a student is 10 or more minutes late to class, the student(s) will be sent to Ms. Jowers, Mrs. Davis or Dr. Georgie.
    • Students must go to Attendance if 10 minutes or more late to 1st Block to sign in. A parent note or medical excuse is needed.
    • Students who come to school at the beginning of or during 2nd, 3rd, or 4th Block, must sign in at Attendance with a parent note or medical excuse.

     *Students should have an Admit Slip to enter class.
