It is the responsibility of the student to be in a class on time. A student is considered tardy if they are not in their seat when the passing bell stops ringing. As per district policy, the Attendance Office will only excuse tardiness if you provide the office with proper documentation in relation to legal matters (court documentation), religious business (official letter from religious institution), medical visit (doctor office note), medical illness (doctor office note).
