How does being late to school affect one's education? Take a look at the chart to get a better idea of how being late can affect your child's learning over extended periods of time.
Class 451 is striving be on time and has learned the following saying:
To be early is to be on time,
to be on time is to be late,
and to be late is unacceptable.
"The more you read,
The more things you know.
The more that you learn,
The more places you'll go."
