Poly's Tardy Sweep Policy

  1. Any student out of class without a proper pass (orange vest and clip board) within the first 10 minutes of a period will be sent to the TARDY SWEEP. The student will be given a stamped UNEXCUSED TARDY SLIP. The student should arrive to class within 7 minutes of the time stamp. 
  2. Teachers can direct students to their SLC Center if the student did not return within 7 minutes from the time stamp. 
  3. Any student picked up after the tardy sweep wandering the campus without a vest and clipboard will be sent to the appropriate Dean. 
  4. Tardies will accumulate by period and will be cleared each quarter to incentivize improvement. 
CONSEQUENCES:
1st Offense: Student warned and sent back to class.
2nd Offense: Student warned and given lunch detention.
3rd Offense: Lunch counseling/detention and call home.
4th Offense: Conference with parent and student and detention.
5th Offense: Student put on contract, parent notified, and detention.
6th Offense: Parent notified and lunch time campus beautification.
7th Offense: Parent notified, campus beautification , mandatory counseling with Pupil Services Attendance counselor/intern. 
 
Please Note: An unexcused tardy of 30 minutes or more is considered truancy. Three truancies triggers progressive support by Poly's Pupil Services Attendance(PSA) Counselor and could lead to habitual truancy intervention and ultimate referral to a School Attendance Review Board(SARB).
