Occasional tardiness for valid reasons is not a serious offense; however, repeated or habitual tardiness encourages the formation of undesirable personal habits and disrupts the orderly instructional process of the school. When a student arrives tardy, parents must escort their child to the office and assist him/her in obtaining a tardy pass to class. This is required to ensure the safety and well-being of the student. In addition, the school may require the parent or guardian to provide justification to determine the reason for the studentís tardiness. If this does not occur and documentation is not provided by the parent, as to the reason for the tardy, the tardy may be considered unexcused. If a student is tardy more than 10 times, a letter will be sent to the parent as notification of the schoolís concern for the studentís non-attendance, and a physicianís note may be required. If the pattern of tardiness does not improve a referral will be made to the Attendance Officer.
Not only is Mark Denicore an attorney and an engineer, Amy Denicore is an attorney too (or was, she may have let it lapse). She is now a stay-at-home mother who is a room mother AND a regular volunteer at their children's school. There is a SCHOOL BUS STOP practically on their doorstep. If she can't get the kids together in the morning, on her own, then HIRE someone to help.
I bet if they hired someone to show up at 6.45 a.m. to assist with getting the kids up and to school and that person was late 30% of the time, the employee would be fired.
