Tardies / Absences

Instruction time is viewed as a precious resource. Learning the responsibility of getting to class on time is an integral part of Slauson Middle Schools standard of excellence, which prepares students for success.  Students should be inside the school by 8:00 a.m.  Afterwards, they must use the front office entrance and get a tardy slip.  Tardiness to school will be unexcused even though the parent brings the student to school.  Oversleeping, car/traffic problems are all unexcused.  Tardies are only excused for court or medical appointments as long as you bring a note.  10 absences a year are considered excessive.  Letters will be mailed home keeping you aware of your child's tardies and/or absences.
