  Tardiness  
 
  • Students arriving after 9:05 A.M. will be marked tardy.  
  • The student must report to the office for a late pass before reporting to their classroom. Parents are required to accompany their child to the office when their child is late for school.
  • Tardiness causes a disruption for EVERYONE, including the child. A student who arrives late is missing valuable academic time and is disrupting classroom routines. 
  • If the child is late due to a situation at home (medical or other), it may be helpful to let school personnel be aware of it. 
  • Tardiness is recorded on student report cards and attendance records.
  • Repeat tardiness will be referred to the Dartmouth Public School’s Attendance Officer for appropriate action.
