Tardy Notifications

Automated Notifications To Be Implemented To Curtail Student Tardiness


Starting class sessions on time is very important to ensure successful deliverance of lessons each class period.  The school bell rings at 8:00am each school day to alert students to proceed to their appropriate classes.  A second bell rings at 8:10am, signaling the start of the first class of the day.  Students who are not inside their classroom at that time are considered tardy to that class. 


Throughout the day, up to four, 5-minute “passing times” occur, during which time students transition from one class to another, or from recess to classes.  After those 5-minute passing periods, a “tardy bell” sounds, indicating the end of passing and the start of the period.  Students not inside their classroom are considered tardy to that class.  If there is a reason that your child cannot regularly make it to classes on time, please contact their counselor to discuss possible solutions to address the issue.  To the best of their ability, teachers and school staff will continue to remind students to report promptly to all classes.  Numerous reminders will be repeated on KVIKS Media Bulletins and signage encouraging punctuality to classes will be increased.  


Beginning Tuesday, November 16, 2021, our school will initiate an automated phone call to parents of all students who were marked tardy from any classes for that day.  This phone call will be similar to the notifications already being made to parents when students are absent from any classes.  To ensure that applicable messages are being delivered, please update your child’s records with our school office as phone numbers and email addresses are changed.  Parents are asked to discuss with their child(ren) the importance of attending their classes regularly and on-time.  


Thank you all in advance for your continued support and dedication to the success of our students.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your child’s counselor or any school administrator at 808-313-5500.
