Yep, and that´s why it seemed awkward and it is. At least it is the first time I have
seen it like this in all my life.

Another reason "For'' wouldn´t "entre" is that would suppose lateness and keeping in time is a tradition in English speaking countries, so they don´t count on lateness.
As far as I know, if somebody is late he will make a call; or the one(s) waiting will call it a day and leave. And they teach this at tender age.
In UK, if your child is late after registration it is classed as an unauthorised absence, I have learned.
To back up the point further:
Please, please, read!
...and Reasons such as personal illness, medical appointments, and appearances in court are deemed as excused lateness when verified by a note from home.
• Five times late – A letter will be sent to the parents/guardians by the Dean of
Students to notify the family that the child has been late 5 times. The letter will be
sent (certified return/receipt requested) to the parent/guardian.
• Ten times late – A letter will be sent (certified return/receipt requested) by the
CAO or designee to the parent/guardian to schedule a meeting to discuss the
child’s lateness. The meeting attendees may include the counselor, nurse, teacher
or other professional, as the CAO deems appropriate. The CAO will summarize
the meeting in a letter to the parent. The letter will be sent (certified return receipt
requested) to the parent. A copy will be placed in the child’s official file. Failureof a
parent/guardian to attend this mandatory meeting will result in an out of
school suspension until such time as the meeting is held.
Fifteen times late – A letter will be sent (certified return/receipt requested) by the
CAO or designee to the parent/guardian to schedule a hearing with the Discipline
Committee of the Board of Trustees to discuss the child’s lateness. The CAO or
designee will present the case to the Committee and the parent/guardian will have
an opportunity to respond. This committee will recommend further action to the
board including, but not limited to, probation, suspension or expulsion.
Fifteen minutes late and you won´t attend class, and it´s a security course to grown ups!
