Tardy is the state of being late, slow, or sluggish.
Tardy for school
Some schools as part of their attempts at providing a safe learning environment will define when the schoolday starts and require the students to be on campus by that time. After that point the school's gates are closed, any any student arriving after the gates are closed is considered tardy and can only be let on to the campus by a staff member. They are typically sent to report to their Dean's Office or the Administration Office (often just called the office) before they can continue to their scheduled lessons. Those tardy without reason or chronically tardy may face punishment.
Many schools have laid down a specific policy whereby students go unpunished for a certain number of tardies per semester, after which spanking ensues. Thus, at Enterprise High School in Alabama, for a fourth tardy the student may choose between two licks with a paddle or two hours' detention. For a fifth tardy, it is three licks or three hours, etc.
Perryton High School in Texas introduced a new tardy policy in 1998 whereby at the sixth tardy in one semester the student can choose either a three-swat paddling or three days' suspension, with the same choice again at every subsequent tardy. Assistant Principal Bub McIver said, "Students need to realize that if they are continually late for work, they are not going to be able to keep a steady job. In the real world, there aren't warnings, just consequences."
This, known as the "three or three" policy, was reported to have reduced latecoming by as much as 50% by the second semester in which it was in force.
Tardy for class
Being tardy for class is considered disruptive to the lesson. Chronic tardiness can result in detention, suspension, or other forms of discipline including corporal punishment. Tardiness that results in a missed roll call is often treated as a skipped class even in older students who attendance is not compulsory, which can result is the class being considered failed if often enough.
Corporal punishment videos
Erotic spanking videos about schoolgirls and office employees sometimes use tardiness as a reason for administering corporal punishment. There are also many domestic stories about girls who get spanked by their parents for arriving home late or past curfew. Below are a few examples.

The Principal's Office is a reality television series from truTV documenting the lives and work of 30 school principals in different parts of the U.S. In the "Three Licks" episode (season one, 2008), a teenage girl at Booneville High School in Arkansas faces all-day Saturday detention for repeated tardiness.
The junior chooses the option of taking three strokes from a large school paddle for a reduced half-day of detention. The sound of the paddle striking the seat of her pants, behind the closed door of the office, is heard on camera. (A video clip is available on YouTube.)
