Tardiness and Medical Excuses
From the Edgerton Handbook:

Parents are asked to call the office (414-525-8900) when their child will be late for school. Please notify the office if your child will be having school lunch. Tardy students must enter the building through the main entrance. ​Parents are asked to accompany their children to the office to sign them in​. There may be legitimate reasons for late arrival to school – i.e., medical/dental appointments, etc. After 8:45 am a child is tardy. There is no differentiation between excused and unexcused tardies. However, if the student was at a medical appointment, obtaining a medical excuse from the physician/dental office will ensure the tardy or absence is documented as medically excused.
