Duveneck Principal and Tardies

What's with John Lents and his punctuality issue? He sends out letters when children get tardies. A tardy can even be due to a medical appt. or if a child feels ill in the morning and then feels good to go to school later. He is forcing parents to call their children in sick to avoid tardies. I agree that children should try to be on time to school, but it's not so easy to get the little ones ready in the morning, especially when we have younger ones to care for too and could have been up most of the night. Should he be harassing children and parents? Duveneck parents are not happy about this at all.
And then some families visit their countries for 3 weeks and it's approved?
Do all principals in PAUSD enforce tardies? I heard Duveneck has never made an issue of tardies in the past. Perhaps Mr. Lents wants to feel he is improving the school in some way?
Addison parent feedback?
