Tardy Policy


NDHS Tardy Policy – In order to maximize instructional time, students are expected to arrive to all classes on time. Tardy students must report to the office when the tardy bell rings.  If a student arrives to class less than five minutes after the tardy bell rings, the student will be considered tardy; more than five minutes is considered skipping, and the student will receive detention. Tardies will accumulate on a per class per semester basis.
