We are seeking your assistance with stopping a concerning trend that has been occurring nearly every Thursday morning. That trend is chronic tardiness. There are a large number of students who arrive late each Thursday. The number of tardy students is nearly seven times as high on this day than on any other day of the week.
Thursday morning is our late start, PLC day. This day provides teachers throughout the district an opportunity to collaborate, share, and learn from one another. The result for our teachers is a guranteed hour each week to plan, review data, and provide the best instruction possible to our students. In order to continue with these all important PLC days, our students must attend, be here on time, and be in their respective classrooms by 8:30 AM.
Beginning next week, we will be assigning disciplinary consequences to repeat offenders. As a parent or guardian, anything that you can do to assist will be greatly appreciated. Our students need to be in class and ready to learn every Thursday morning at 8:30 AM.
