Tardy Policy

Tardy Policy


Classes begin at 8:00 a.m.  Tardy Bell rings at 8:05 a.m.


At Pine Forest all students are expected to attend school regularly and to be on time to class for three important reasons:

1) To derive maximum benefits from the instructional program.

2) To develop life long habits of punctuality, self discipline, and responsibility.

3) To prevent disruption to instruction in the class.


Tardy students must check in at the front foyer and receive a laminated class admit to give the teacher upon arrival to class.
Discipline measures will be addressed for excessive tardiness and late pick-ups (after 2:20 for Kinder and 3:40 for grades 1-5).
Tardy Consequences per Nine Weeks:
4th Tardy-Parent notification by teacher
5th Tardy-Teacher notifies Assistant Principal via email. Parent notification by administration. Consequences will be issued on individual basis by administor.
