Tardy Policy


Recently, students at East Noble High School have been informed of a new tardy policy that will be implemented for those who arrive to class after the bell, but is this policy really “new”? After gaining information from Assistant Principal Mrs. Longenbaugh, it is clear that the policy hasn’t really changed. Students’ tardies are still recorded, and consequences are applied when they are prompted just as it always has been in our student handbook. The only difference seems to be that now when a student is late, excused or unexcused, they have to fill out a bright green sheet of paper concerning their tardiness. After the fourth tardy, consequences will be decided.

So is the policy¬†“new”? Apart from the paperwork, not truly. And if you are one that is never late to class, it will be like nothing has changed. Keep it up!
