Dear BOBCAT  Nation,

I hope that you and your family had an enjoyable Thanksgiving week.

As communicated in our November 19 newsletter, we will place a focus on student daily attendance and reducing the number of tardies students  accumulate during the Winter Trimester.  Even without a direct focus on attendance during the Fall Trimester, we had 350 students with 5 or fewer tardies in all of their classes and 155 students with 2 or less absences.

Why is there a focus on being present and being on time?
The purpose behind this initiative is to have students practice the important life skill of time management.  When you are present and on time, you will have several direct benefits:
  • Communicate that you respect the other person’s time
  • Demonstrate that you are dependable
  • Build discipline to organize your time
  • Assure that you’re at your B.E.S.T. for the task at hand
How do you define a tardy and what happens if a student is tardy?
  • A tardy is defined as not being in your designated classroom before the bell rings.  In the case of Physical Education, students must be on their assigned numbers.
  • When a student is tardy, they need to get a re-admit slip from one of two places:
    • Students in P.E., 1000, or 2000 Building
      Mr. Charlie will be standing on the academic mall between the 1000 and 200 building.
    • Students in the 5000 Building
      Go to Mrs. Harris in the attendance office
What are the positive and negative Consequences?
The student Tardy Tally is Cumulative.  This is to say, that the Tardy Tally is a summary of all of the tardies received for each period of the day.

Tardies 1-5:         Warnings
Tardies 6+:          30 minute detention per tardy 
When a student is on time to each period for 10 consecutive days, the tardy total is reduced by 1.
