At The Dinoff School, we believe that promptness is a very important aspect of your child’s training. It is, therefore, essential that your child arrive to school on time. Tardiness interferes with a pupil’s progress and is unfair to the other pupils of the class who are disturbed by the tardy member. Reasonable explanations may be acceptable.
However, habitual tardiness is not acceptable behavior and WILL result in detention, parental contact, in school or out of school suspension. If a student does arrive late for school, he/she must report to the school office for a “late pass”. The arrival of a pupil after the time scheduled for the opening of classes constitutes tardiness. A MAXIMUM of 10 unexcused absences in any one semester will result in detention.
Excused tardy – a tardy that is a result of sickness, accident, or other reasonable problem deemed serious by the school. Oversleeping is not considered excused.
Unexcused tardy – all other reasons. Excessive tardiness will result in a meeting with administrator.
