A student is tardy if he or she arrives after the beginning of class. Elementary schools may mark a student absent for half a day if the student arrives after a time designated by the school. High school tardiness is noted for each class.

​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.
