Tardy Policy for CVHS
Student is considered tardy if not completely inside the assigned room when the bell rings. Individual teachers may require a more strict definition (i.e., Students must be in seat when the bell rings).
Lock Out – CVHS will have a detention room where locked-out students will go. Teachers may lock students out of their rooms AFTER the tardy bell has rung. Security and other personnel will escort those students to detention. The detention room is NOT for teachers to send students with disciplinary issues. Any student with disciplinary issues must be sent to the students’ counselor or administrator.
Period 1 Tardies
- Students who are tardy within the first 7-minutes following the late bell will be required to report to the attendance window for a pass to class.
- After the first 7-minutes, parents will need to walk their student to the attendance window to have the student checked-in. The student then will be given a pass to class with a tardy marked in attendance. Students who show late to class without a pass will be sent to detention.
- Students who are tardy but do not have a parent accompanying them to the attendance window will be escorted to detention as per the lock out policy. The student will be marked as tardy.
For Tardies/Detentions in any one period:
1st Tardy/Detention - Automated call home.
2nd Tardy/Detention - Automated call home.
3rd Tardy/Detention - Automated call home; one lunch detention assigned.
4th Tardy/Detention - Automated call home; two lunch detentions assigned.
5th Tardy/Detention - Automated call home; after school detention assigned; SART or Student Attendance and Review Board referral (SARB).
Please Note: Tardies and Detentions count together when assigning the above consequences. Additionally, for any student who has 10 or more cumulative tardies (i.e., including all periods together), he/she will also be issued an after school detention.
