Pahrump Valley High School Tardy Policy
Any student entering the class after the bell finishes ringing.
Progressive Tardy Discipline Process (In one class):
1. 1st Tardy – Talked to by the teacher
2. 2nd Tardy – Parent call home
3. 3rd tardy - 1 full day of in-school detention, parent notification
4. 4th tardy - one day suspension
5. 5th tardy – two day suspension
6. 6th tardy – three day suspension, Parent Meeting if not already held
7. Any tardy after this – 3 day suspension
Progressive Tardy Discipline Process (In multiple classes):
Having multiple tardies in multiple classes will lead to further disciplinary action. This action may occur before reaching the 3rd step in one class.
First Period Tardy
Parents can call and excuse a first hour tardy only if the tardy is excused before the student arrives at school. Parents cannot excuse tardies after the start of school on that day or for any other period.
Tardy From Another Class
Staff members (Social workers, counselors, Gear-Up, etc) who are responsible for a student arriving tardy at another class need to communicate with that teacher by giving the student a pass to class. Teachers should not mark students tardy if the student arrived with a pass from another staff member or the office. Teachers should not hold students, causing them to be tardy in other classes.
Students are not allowed to leave class for the first 10 minutes of the period or for the last 10 minutes of the period. The only exceptions are health emergencies.
Parents: if you have questions regarding these changes, feel free to attend the Town Hall meeting on Thursday March 9, 2017 at 6:00 PM in the high school cafeteria.
