Library time is scheduled every week (mostly on Friday). I am happy to send students to the library before Friday if it is needed. Students may check out 3 library books at one time. Students must have a barcode on their planner to check out a book until we have student ID’s.
Students who are one or more minutes late to class will be marked Tardy. At 3 tardies, I will contact home via email, and copy the front office on the email. At 4 tardies, students will be referred to the office AND serve a lunch detention. An updated copy of our tardy policy is on my blog!
