Congratulations to Brooke Carter for scoring perfect on the ELA portion of PASS!
Latta Middle School has been awarded the Palmetto Silver Award! The Palmetto Gold and Silver Awards Program gives recognition to schools for high levels of academic achievement and high rates of improvement.
Code JHA Issued 01/12
Purpose: To establish the basic structure for dealing with tardiness by students
K through eighth grade students (tardy to school)
Students who are chronically late to school often suffer academically from lost
instructional time. For this reason, a record should be kept of all tardies to school.
When tardies become excessive in the opinion of the principal, he/she, in
consultation with appropriate staff, will counsel the parent/legal guardian.
If after this counseling the student is persistently tardy, the principal will
notify the parent/legal guardian and an intervention plan to correct the problem
will be written.
If the parent/legal guardian fails to comply with the intervention plan,
the principal at his/her discretion may refer the case to proper authorities
for educational neglect.
For purposes of this policy, three unexcused tardies to school
will constitute one unexcused absence. Additionally, three
unexcused early dismissal sign-outs will constitute one unexcused
absence. Unexcused tardies or early sign-outs are those that would
not qualify as “lawful absences” under board policy.
