Tardy Policy

Students are tardy when they are not in their assigned classes when the bell begins to ring for class to start. Tardy students must report immediately to a tardy station to receive a pass to class and the appropriate consequence. Students will not be allowed to enter any classroom without a valid pass. Students who are 15 minutes late to class without an excused tardy will report to ISS for the class period. Students will have 7 calendar days to serve any detention hours from the date assigned or receive Saturday Work Detail.

REMINDER: Ridge View Reads Summer Reading Program

The purpose of our summer reading program is to motivate non-readers to read and encourage readers to read more! On average, students lose three months of information retention over the summer, but reading just 15 minutes a day can prevent this loss. Summer reading can also serve as an exciting opportunity for students to read for pleasure while building background knowledge and comprehension skills. There are two components to our summer reading program: school-wide summer reading and an English Department Honors and AP Summer Reading program.
