Just curious what everyone elses experience is since some moms (not in this group) are acting like my child being late a couple times means I don't care about his education.

My son takes the school bus, and it gets there 15-20 minutes before school starts. So he's never tardy unless his school bus is running really, really late. If that is the case, then it's an excused tardy.

She is only late if she has a morning doctor's appointment.  Otherwise she is on time barring any delays schoolbus has.

Dd has been tardy 5 times this year for various reasons ranging from ds being at the hospital to snow related traffic where the hour that they (dh takes her) allow themselves just isn't enough.

1-2x per year, except for drs appointments, those days are considered tardy but i wouldn't count that.

My son has never been late. Unless his bus was late. But that's an excused late since it wouldn't be his fault.

I voted "other" because while she's never been late to school, she has had to leave early for orthodontist appointments, and they've marked her "tardy" on those days.  I asked the front office and was told that "anything that disrupts the normal school day hours will get a student marked tardy.  We have no way of marking it as leaving early or arriving late."

Never if I can help ot but she has had one excused tardy this year since she was late because I was being extra cautious on the snow since it was my first time driving on it.

DD has been late to school twice this year. Once because I woke up late, and once because her dad took her out to breakfast before school. I would never make a habit of being late to school, but it is understandable that things happen beyond your control. I have had students that were late to school, by 15 or 30 minutes, all the time. When a student is missing a lesson every morning, it becomes a problem.
