School Tardiness

WE Middle School has demonstrated flexibility with students as they navigate the morning traffic and learn their way around the building.  A warning bell occurs at 7:37 each morning and Block 1 begins promptly at 7:42 a.m.  Starting Monday, September 20, students who are not in class by 7:42 a.m. should enter through the Main Doors and sign-in late at the attendance office.  As outlined in the Student Handbook, excessive “unexcused” tardiness results in consequences.   

West Essex provides busing to all students, often within two to three blocks of every residence.  To reduce the traffic on campus each morning, we encourage all students to take the bus.  Additionally, when a bus is late to school all the students who rode the bus are considered as “excused” tardy to school and therefore do not receive disciplinary consequences.  Please consider utilizing district transportation.
