Turlock Jr. High School

Tardy Policy

Students are responsible to be in their assigned seat or workstation when the tardy bell rings at the beginning of each class; being tardy is disruptive to the teaching/learning process.  All students arriving to school after 7:50 a.m. must check in with the attendance office before going to class. The student should have a note from the parent/guardian explaining the reason for the tardy.  If the student does not have a note, one detention will be assigned for each period missed.  The automated phone system will notify parents of a student’s tardy and a letter will be mailed home.  Teacher may verify tardy with student and call the parent when a pattern develops.  Teachers may also assign consequences and tardies may also affect citizenship grade.
