Tardy Policy

Home » School Guidelines » Tardy Policy


Arriving at school on time makes everyone’s day go better. What does it mean to be on time at Ancona?

It means that a child is in her classroom and ready to get to work by 8:20 a.m. Children who arrive in their classrooms after 8:20 a.m. are considered tardy. Please help your child establish good habits by arriving before 8:15 so that s/he has plenty of time to get to her locker, get organized and get into class on time.

Students who walk the front doors after 8:20 will be asked to fill out a “tardy slip” to bring to their classroom teacher.
