Excessive Tardies Policy

In an effort to utilize all academic opportunities during school hours, students arriving late repeatedly will be required to attend Gateway High School After School Detention. Excessive tardies is considered arriving after 7:05 am, unexcused, 3 or more times in a month. Detention will be held after school Tuesdays from 1:35-3:30 pm. Missing after school detention may lead to referrals and/or in school suspension. Students must be picked up by a parent/guardian at 3:30 pm. and parents/guardians will be notified Friday afternoon via Parentlink for a student to attend detention the following Tuesday.


During detention, students will work on missing assignments to make up lost instructional time from being late to school. They will have access to the Google classroom, Sora, and FOCUS.  Students will be monitored by a teacher in a small group setting, and required to stay for the entirety of detention.


Academic excellence is a priority at Gateway High School and arriving to school on time is important to achieving this. Please contact the school if you have any concerns.
