    THANKSGIVING BREAK - November 22 thru November 26 NO SCHOOL - HAPPY THANKSGIVING

    HEJH TARDY POLICY Tardies are non-productive and detrimental to student success. According to Moore Schools Board Policy, two tardies equal one absence. Further, as mentioned in the Student Handbook, excessive tardies may result in disciplinary action being taken.

    • First tardy Warning and documentation by teacher
    • Second tardy One unexcused absence
    • Third tardy one detention assigned
    • Fourth tardy two detentions assigned
    • Fifth tardy (and for each tardy thereafter) office referral

    Office referrals are handled by the building principals and typically result in In School Detention being assigned. If the tardiness continues, disciplinary action may increase with each succeeding infraction.
