School starts at 8:15 every morning. The school opens for student access at 7:00 am, so there should not be a reason for students to time their arrival so closely as to risk being late. Students who have accrued 4 unexcused latenesses within a one month period will have to have to serve a Saturday detention.  Saturday detentions will take place once per month at SLA from 9 am - 11am. 

Latenesses that are the result of doctor visits or other extenuating circumstances, accompanied with a note, will not count toward detentions. Train delays that are not reported by SEPTA are not excused. Seniors who do not have a first period class do not have to report until second period.

If you know your child will be late, please email or send in a note and cc your child's advisor.
