School Attendance Policies and Procedures
In order to ensure that every child receives the instructional hours necessary to meet the grade-level
culmination requirements, it is imperative that he/she arrive to school on-time and prepared to learn.
Classes begin at 7:55 a.m. daily. It is strongly recommended that each student arrive on campus no
later than 7:45 a.m. so that he/she can arrive in class prior to the sounding of the tardy bell.
Student records related to attendance and tardiness are maintained for the entire school year and are
cumulative per semester. Individuals who demonstrate a pattern of tardiness will be subject to the
following progressive disciplinary measures:
1st , 2nd and 3rd Tardy Warning
4th Tardy 30 min. lunch detention assigned for this and every subsequent tardy
5th Tardy Conference with grade-level counselor
6th Tardy Phone conference held with parent/guardian
7th Tardy Issuance of 2nd Attendance Policy letter
8th Tardy Parent conference scheduled
9th Tardy Parent Shadow scheduled
10th Tardy Referral to PSA Counselor
*Any student with more than ten (10) tardies to Homeroom will be referred to SARB
(School Attendance Review Board) and/or a local law enforcement agency for additional intervention.
We look forward to working with you and your child in the coming year in an effort to collectively
ensure that he/she performs at his/her greatest potential. If you have any questions regarding Paul
Revere Charter Middle School’s attendance policy, please contact either your child’s counselor or
the Student Services Office at (310) 917-4882.
Thank you in advance for your efforts toward fostering your child’s growth and success.
