Per district and school policy, a tardy is defined as arrival to class within the first ten (10) minutes after the beginning of class, and an absence is defined as being 31 minutes or later to class. If a student has an excused absence, they should first check the course website/Google Classroom to find class information including what assignments they missed and when they are due. This should be done before emailing the teacher. It is the responsibility of the student to turn in missed assignments and account for excused absences. Please refer to LVUSD Middle Schools Online Distance Learning Expectations for more information as well as the procedure for tardies/absences due to technological difficulties.
