Tardy Policy


    The school day begins with homeroom at 7:44 a.m., with the students seated and prepared for the day. If a student arrives at SCMS after 7:49 they are considered tardy, and will need to sign in with the office.
    Consequences for repetitive tardies will be:
    5 unexcused tardies = Lunch Detention (students will eat lunch separately from their peers)
    10 unexcused tardies = 1 hour ISS
    15 unexcused tardies = ½ day of ISS
    20 unexcused tardies = 1 day of ISS
    Please remember, students should be in their homerooms seated and ready for the school day at 7:49. The consequence path for tardies will start over each nine weeks. However, tardies will continue to count toward their overall attendance.
    Please make every effort to make full attendance a top priority. Thank you.
