  • Get it together

    Honestly I get it, traffic, or whatever but sometimes the teacher doesn't assign detention with things like that.

    School is 205 days of the year approximently, around 9 months subtracting the weekends and constant holidays.

    Many people ditch, especially in schools in Nevada (las vegas where I am currently attending my final highschool #classof2018) Arizona and California.

    I'll admit I tend to not have the best time management and I as well could agree with those who said no per say, on behalf of those indivuals, being 1 minute late is not rational or understanding...
    This isn't college.

    And nor can we expect to be at school excally 8AM everyday unless you get there ealier.

    Either way it's the same routine, I don't understand how you could be late in the 2nd half of the school year

  • It is not always their fault

    It is not fair for children to get detention for being late because sometimes you never know the reason why. I understand why children get detentions but not all children are like that, most kids try to be on time but sometimes thing get in the way like traffic, bus break downs, etc.

  • Stop Slacking Off.

    I am agreeing to this because you need to learn how to be responsible in the morning instead of slacking off. If you had a traffic problem, learn from it and wake up earlier. Maybe reporting it to the teacher can make a difference instead of getting the detention given.

  • We need this program

    When having a "tardy sweep" we can ensure the children can be accountable and have integrity to do the right thing and simply get to class on time. I'm not saying we never have a bad morining and make it late to first hour, that could be you and your parents fault. However 2nd hour and so on, you have no reason to not be on time to class. This will teach the kids the challenges being late, because your new boss isn't gonna just except an excuse for being late to a meeting. Therefore teaching them at a young age, to be on time, could impact our society as they get older, just simply don't be late and you shouldn't have to get a detention.

  • No bloody way

    I go to enfield grammar school and they gave me a late detention for being 7 minutes late to school because i have a condition where my groin hurts and in the morning it was hurting bad. I missed the detention by accident so now im getting a 45 minute detention if they fucking remember

  • Not their fault

    I got a L3 (basically a C3 for being late) for my sister being locked in her room and she got nothing. . We're in the same school. Tbh i now have an hr detention. Some people get detentions for worse reasons.
    'my brother fainted' DETENTION.
    'my aunt is in a coma' DETENTION.
    Ppl calll this fairness :/

  • School is not a prison

    School should not be treated as a potential prison. Children should not be anxious and afraid. They are not potential prisoners. Many children depend on their parents to take them to middle school these days. Therefore if you follow this logic, Parents should be placed in detention- not middle school students!

  • They Shouldn't Get Detention

    As many people have said above, tardiness isn't always the student's fault. Sometimes it's the parent's fault because they leave to drop the student off at a bad time and sometimes the traffic is worse than expected. Sometimes, there are unexpected road closures. If the student took forever to get ready and was holding their parent up to take them to school, then the student should probably get detention, but these reasons for tardiness are rare and usually, tardiness is not the student's fault. Before giving the student detention, the teacher should ask why the student was late.

  • Detention for beibg late is wrong

    What is a kindergardener going to learn from getting detention for being late. What should the kids be punished for things they have no control of? My friend is in a coma at the hospital; the responsibility of getting kids to school falls on the other parent, who has never done it before. He is learning but still cant seem to get them there on time. The school gives the kids detention even if they are 1 minute late. The school should have more grace for the situation. Its not the childs fault for these life situations.

  • NO just NO

    Because what if there was a reason for the late or the parents had to do night shift at a job and they come home late. They should understand that everyone is late at some point of their lives especially i the parents work shift. And I find this very very stupid

  • Its fucking stupid

    I have detention because of my physical uncapabilites omgomgomg they dare givre me a dir discipline incident report and then detention for one hour on fucking friday becauser i cant bring my trumpet running down to the fucking music room share this injustice #no detention for us its unfair yo

  • Is this fair??

    I myself am a quiet and hard-working student. I was late by 2 minutes yesterday and the day before by 1 minutes, the reason j was late, was because i cant walk properly.
    The teacher gives me an 1 hour detention after skl! And doesnt even ask why was i late!!!

  • Would you rather they not come at all?

    Since my school give a detention for having 5 lates, but no detentions for absents until you reach 10. It would make more sense to just not go to school today, so instead of missing the 5 minutes of school, you miss the whole day. And you shouldn't punish absences until they reach an excessive point. In my case my parents only have one car, so I cannot be driven to school, so if I miss the bus, instead of getting driven to school later, sometimes I get there only a few minutes late, and getting a late and a detention, I should just skip the day.

  • No they fucking shouldnt

    It is absolutely ridiculous. Here's the thing, I understand that being late to class is wrong and that maybe we as students should get our shit together but sometimes, it is extremely unfair. I show up late to my first period class every morning because I walk and my locker is on the opposite side of the school and a whole bunch of other excuses. Im only ever 5mins late, I never miss the anthem because I still stop for it in the hallway while im on my way, I don't even miss learning because the announcements take up majority of the time. My teacher is now threatening to give me detention at lunch which would be understandable if I was the worst kid. There are students who are regularly late, more late than I am. There are students who skip class. There are students who leave to the "bathroom" for 30+ minutes. None of those students who, mind you, majority of them are also not doing well in their classes, none of them get detentions. Why am I the only one? I am an A student, I don't cause much trouble, my relationships with my teachers are pretty good, I avoid causing trouble with students, to give me a detention for pretty much missing the morning announcements is ridiculous. On top of that, as high school students, we are only really able to go outside of we skip or if we go out for lunch. Most of our social interaction is at lunch because we aren't technically allowed to talk very much about unschool related things in class and we are generally sitting there listening to the teacher. If lunch is my only time to go out and get some fresh air and really be with my friends in the whole 6-7 hour school day, that shouldn't be taken away from me. After school, I have homework, work, extra curriculars, babysitting, chores and whatever else I choose to do so I can't do much there. To say that being late for school all the time will correlate to how you will be for other important things is stupid. We just have our priorities straight. Announcements? Not that important. I will show up 20 mins early to an interview that starts at 7am and that I have to walk to without giving it a second thought because it's important. The first 5-10mins of school isn't that important. Bottomline, if you really really want to give students detentions for being late by 5 fucking minutes, you better give it to every single student that has some kind of attendance problem. Otherwise, back off. The announcements aren't even that interesting.
