Tardy Policy

Students are expected to be seated in class when the tardy bell rings. If a student is late to school, he/she is required to check in with the attendance office before going to class. Frequent tardiness without a valid excuse is considered truancy under state law. You may view your student attendance and tardy records by logging into SchoolLoop and clicking on the attendance tab or through the Student and Parent Portals. 


At Ladera Ranch Middle School our vision is unwavering commitment to student success.
