School hours for all students are 8:00 am to 3:30 pm.  It is every parent/guardian’s responsibility to get his or her child to school on time and it is the responsibility of every student to report to each class on time. Renaissance Academy believes that students who are late to school or are tardy to class begin the day or individual class at a disadvantage.

Five (5) unexcused lateness’s (grades 7-12) or three (3) or more unexcused lateness's (grades K-6) each trimester may result in the following corrective action:

1. Warning
2. Counseling
3. Family/ School Meeting
4. Truancy Elimination Plan
5. Alternative Placement

Unexcused lateness’s that total eight hours (one school day) when combined with unexcused absences, may result in a citation to the parents by the sending school district.

7th-12 grade students who are late to class during the school day and do not have their agenda signed by a staff member are considered unexcused and late to class. If a student accumulates 5 unexcused tardies to a single class during a trimester, after school detention will be assigned.
