A student is tardy if he or she arrives after the time fixed by school policy for the beginning of the morning or afternoon session. If the student comes after the designated time, he or she is marked absent for half a day.

​The school policy for tardiness must be clearly explained in the parent/student handbook. The school must keep a record of all tardiness in the attendance register and records.
