2017 Tardy Policy

Effective January 9, 2017






Students at Abbott are expected to be in class on time. Getting to class on time ensures that you never miss important information; helps develop lifelong habits, and shows your respect for other people.


Students should not be in the hall after the bell. If students need to go to the office, nurse, or bathroom, they should report to class on time and ask their teacher for an office escort. You may not be in the hallway without an escort for any reason.


Students late to class or in the hall without an escort will be given a detention for the next day. Students may choose either morning (8:05-8:50 a.m.) or afternoon (3:35-4:30 p.m.) to serve their detention.
