We all know that it takes a lot to get a middle school teenager out of bed, but there is nothing we dread more than being sent down to the attendance office because we didn’t make it to class on time. In all honesty, tardy slips are so unnecessary. They get frustrated because we are late, but yet they send us down to wait 5 minutes for a slip that just says were late, that makes us even more late. There are many more ways to go about the situation, but instead of sending kids down to the attendance office the teachers themselves just keep track of all of the late kids and they can later inform the administration. It makes it even more inconvenient for the teachers because not only was that kid late for the bell but by sending them down, you just gave them a good reason to be 10 more minutes late. At the end of the day all of the grumpy, growing, stressed and frustrated middle school teenagers go home to complain about the many things wrong that happened in their day, and tardy slips just happens to be one of them.
