Does being late for school really matter? In the morning rush, just getting your child out the door can be a victory. But will the child be on time? Occasionally, circumstances beyond your control will cause a late arrival. But a pattern of late arrivals - even by just a few minutes - can have a negative impact.
- A last minute scramble can be stressful and send the child to school in the wrong frame of mind and not ready to learn
- Students miss social time with their peers before school begins
- Students who are late often feel embarrassed or self-conscious
We encourage all students to be on time for school as it starts the day on a positive note, socializing and learning together. Remember that students are let into the building at 8:40, and that teachers are out on duty to supervise students at 8:30. Thanks for your support and cooperation in getting students to school on time.
