Tardy Policy & Procedures

  • Washington McKinley School

    Dear Parents/Guardians,

    School begins at 7:50 am. A student who is not in the classroom at 7:55 am is tardy.  It would be a good idea for your child to be in line, with their class, at 7:45 am.  In addition, breakfast is served at 7:30 am each morning.  Students who eat breakfast at school are never tardy.


    Being tardy prevents your child from getting a good start in class each day.  Your child is missing important information and lessons.  The teachers and students in the classroom are interrupted when your child enters late.


    Our tardy policy includes the following consequences:

      1. 1st Tardy – Written Warning
      2. 2nd Tardy – 20 Minute After School Detention
      3. 3rd and 4th Tardy – 40 Minute After School Detention
      4. 5th Tardy – 7:00 AM Detention

    Thank you for your help!


    Dr. Sutherland
