Bonjour John ! First, Basile is a masculine name :) But more to the point, "tard" is not an adjective here, but an adverb (late), therefore it never changes nor agrees : Il se couche tard. Elle se couche tard. Ils se couchent tard. Elles se couchent tard. I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !
Thank you for your quick response!
