New Tardy Policy Pilot!

Parents, Guardians, Students, and SMHS Community members,
We would like to share with you that starting today, Monday, April 17th, we will begin a pilot of the proposed 2017-2018 tardy policy. The new policy will be implemented on 4/17 - 5/12 with Saturday School on 5/13 from 8-11AM (if necessary).  
 
Consequences
 
5th tardy (to any class) - 1 hour of choices 
10th tardy (to any class) - 2 hours of choices
15th tardy (to any class) - 3 hours of Saturday School & Student Contract
20th tardy (to any class) - Two  3 hour Saturday Schools & ATS (Alternative to Suspension)
20th tardy may be implemented in the Fall
 
This fall: 
Tardy Policy is by semester and will reset at the start of the semester
 
5 Tardies = 1 Hour Choices
 
10 Tardies = 2 Hour Choices
 
15 Tardies = 3 Hour Saturday Session and Contract
 
20 Tardies = two 3 Hour Saturday Session and Alternative to Suspension (ATS)
 
Teachers will no longer write tardy referrals.  Weekly reports will allow us to see who will be spoken to by the Dean of Students.
