“After the bell rings and you are late, you go to a security guard with a portable HERO or one with a computer. You can give us your ID or your ID number. Each time you are scanned, it keeps track of how many times you have been late. A ticket is then given and the teacher signs and it fixes the attendance to say tardy. After four tickets, it is a lunch detention. After 6 tardies it is an after school detention. After eight tardies, it is a PASS, or an in-school suspension,” security guard Kelly Herriman said.
