Tardiness Policy

Lake Gibson High School has a tardy policy that all students will adhere to. The first bell rings at 6:50 a.m. to signal the students to head to the first period. The students are tardy at 7:00 a.m. The announcements and the pledge start promptly at 7:00 a.m. We have designated the first 10 minutes of the first period (homeroom) for announcements and the pledge. However, the students MUST be in their classrooms by 7:00 a.m. sharp! All tardy students MUST report to the learning center for that specified period if they are tardy. The students have 10 minutes to report to 2nd period after the first period is dismissed at 7:58 a.m. Between 2nd – 7th periods the students have 6 minutes to transition to their classes. If any student is tardy they will report to the learning center for that period. After four visits to the learning center, the student will receive a referral for excessive tardiness.
