Procedures for Late Arrival & Early Departure

Late Arrival – Parents, or authorized individuals, must accompany their Lower School children to the Lower School office and sign them in for the day.  Middle and Upper School students must report to the Upper School office and sign themselves in for the day.  All late arrivals must be accompanied by a note from the parent or authorized individual.

Early Departure – Parents, or authorized individuals, must sign their Lower School children out for the day at the lower school office.  For early departures of Middle and Upper School students, we ask that parents or authorized individuals visit or call the Upper School office to provide permission for the student to leave.  All students must sign themselves out for the day.

Make-Up Work for Absences

It is the responsibility of each student to meet with his/her teachers to receive and complete missed assignments due to absences.  Assignments must be made up within 5 days of the absence, or a grade of “0” will be entered into the gradebook.

Student Cell Phone Use

Students shall not use their cell phones during the school day unless authorized by a faculty or staff member.  Tidewater’s cell phone policy can be read in its entirety in the school handbook.
