Tardy to School?
Posted 1/10/08
Wow, I didn't know that some scholls were that strict. My school was pretty lax when it came to tardies or skipping. My junior year I must've been late like 14 times to first hour and it wasn't until then that my teacher notified the AP. I got chewed out and got a 30 minute detention. Only served 15 cause my teacher was cool.

It was really funny because my buddies always got away with skipping and being late. Well you see, if you skip or something and it's not really deal all they did at my HS was send a slip down to your class telling you to go talk to the AP. But, this is the greatest part, if you take the slip and don't go talk to the AP then no one cares. You're supposed to get the AP's signature and show it to your teacher when you get back but if you don't come back the teacher won't care and next hour's teacher won't have a clue. Everyone should take advantages of funny loopholes like this if their are any at your school.

Since I go to college no one cares if I'm late.

But for all you highschoolers out there I'll tell you how I got out of being punished when I was late. My parents being the best ever would sign blank sheets of paper for me, and I would write an excuse each time I'm late. But if your parents will not do that learn how to copy your parents signature, and write your own excuse notes. My brother did that all through highschool. That's why my parents decided that it would just be easier to sign blank sheet notes than to have to find out your kid is copying your signature. (My brother told them he copied their signatures)

It was there when I was in high school. Get over it kid. It is something to punish the kids for for being late. I was one second late to class for my last class and I got a detention. I didn't whine and complain about it. I was am always late for my first class because of my little brother, but I didn't boehr going to it, so I ditched it and waked around campus to avoid the tardy sweep. Hahahaha

We can't be late anymore than once. Anymore than that during anytime of the school year you will get an hour detention either on a Tuesday or a Thursday. I was late once and only a 5 sec. (5 seconds late!) and I had to go to the tardy window. Most of the students activity like being late or eating lunch and stuff is computerized. They even notify your parents! I fear getting late the second time. It's hard cuz I wake up late and I kinda take a long time getting ready cuz I have to eat breakfest. I eat a lot so it takes a while and I have to wait for my mom to get up too! I usually almost late but I'm lucky so I barely make it.

Being tardy to school is one of my expertise. I can never wake up early enough to get ready.
My school is asdfucking retarded. not literally
but it's pretty messed up
they have this thing called Tardy Sweep
If you are 5 minutes late for class, you're gonna have to report to the Tardy Sweep
you sit there with a whole bunch of other kids..

you can't sleep, can't talk, can't do hw, can't put your head down, can't have your cellfone out

you can't do anything besides sitting like a stagnant puddle of water...doing absolutely NOTHING but stare into space

they didn't have this kind of shit in my 1st high school
the 2nd highschool i went to have it
i was new so i was pretty lost looking for my class
i tried to explain to them but they won't listen
they sent me to tardy sweep twice in that high school

recently this year i moved to another school in the same district
they too have the Tardy Sweep thing
I kinda got lost..but I managed to stay from the Assistant Principals so they won't capture me and hold me hostage >>>><<<<

but i woke up late and i was ONLY 5 MINUTES LATER TO CLASS
the AP told me to go to Tardy Sweep
if I refuse then it's an automatic suspension
i was sooo mad
i literally cried for an hour sitting like a dumbass doing nothing during Tardy Sweep
I missed soo much notes that day for my 1st period class
i was fuckin pissed off

the point being is...WHY DO THEY DO THIS SHIT
5 mins late and they send kids to tardy sweep just so they can sit on their ass for a whole hour doing nothing productive
why can't they just write us a frickin pass so we dont have to miss our lesson?


i know it's my fault and all that i woke up late
but what if other ppl ran into traffic or an accident just happened as they were on their way to school
they weren't intentionally late
shit happens...

the more they do that....the less motivated kids will be when it comes to learning
they'll probably give up and say "fuck school"

i hate school. but i dont want to miss any fxkin class
just to make my dad happy


so yeah. sorry about my ranting =[

does your school do that??
are you upset about it???
if you are then let it out
RAWR

i wrote a letter couple weeks ago to my AP to protest against this Tardy Sweep crap
they haven't call for me yet...
Tardy Sweeps are discouraging...corrupting
booohooo


ALIEF? HISD? FORT BEND? KATY?

I bet its FBISD. lol

it's Cy-Fair ISD

it's crazy
they're so strict

they will know if you skip or leave school early
cus for whatever period you miss
they will call home and notify your parents
I HATE IT ><

My college doesn't care...
You can be late and miss lessons... And they won't do a thing.
But basically we're doing ourselves out of an education. So we still go.

Plus if we have a low attendance (under90%) We have to pay for our exams >,<

At my school they won't do anything else than give you a warning, like 5-6 late comings and your grade starts falling.

I can be late 4 times before anything really happens. On the 4th time I get an hour of after school detention, but that's not really so bad. And I don't mean 4 in total, I mean 4 for each class.
