Heritage Academy Laveen Tardy Policy

Punctuality is one of the self-disciplines scholars are encouraged to learn and practice.  Scholars are expected to be on time for class throughout the year.  Tardiness is a failure to appear on time and is considered a form of absence.  Without exception, scholars are to be in the classroom, sitting in their seat when the final bell rings.  Tardiness is disruptive to the learning environment and needs to be kept to a minimum.

Scholars who are not in their seat by the time the bell rings at 7:30 are considered tardy.

On the 3rd tardy the scholar will receive a warning either verbally or through e-mail.

On the 4th tardy, the scholar will be sent to sweep.  Sweep is a detention-like room where scholars will help clean campus and/or work on school assignments.

On the 2nd sweep the parent is contacted by the sweep teacher.

On the 4th sweep a parent conference is scheduled with the principal.

On the 6th sweep the scholar will receive an off-campus suspension.

Thank you for encouraging your scholars to get to school on time.

Scholar Council will be sponsoring “Wish Weeks” October 15-25.
