Tardy Policy

Justice Intermediate School strives to maximize the instructional and learning times. In order to achieve this expectation, it is necessary for students to be in class at the appropriate time for the beginning of class. Being on time is an important life skill that is part of the world around us. Students have four minutes to move between classes during passing period. However, when a student is not in class on time without a legitimate reason, they will receive an unexcused tardy to this particular class.

The consequences for being repeatedly tardy to class are:
