Electronics

The school policies on electronics will be enforced in this class. Electronics are to be completely put away during lecture. I reserve the right to confiscate electronics. Enforcement is as follows:

  1. Verbal Warning
  2. Teacher confiscates electronics and they will be returned at the end of class
  3. If there is a chronic problem, parents will be required to pick up the device at the end of the day from my room.

Hall Passes

Each student will be given two hall passes per quarter.  Hall passes that are not used can be turned into the teacher at the end of the quarter for 10 extra credit points each (20 points possible).  Lost or used hall passes will NOT be replaced, and the student will not be allowed out of the room without one (unless the office calls them down).

5 tardies= no extra credit.

School Excused Absences

  1. If assignment is due on a day you will be gone, turn it in before absence.
  2. Assignments given in your absence due the same time as the rest of the class.
  3. Check with me before your absence for additional lectures, discussions, demonstrations, videos, etc. that need to be made up.
  4. Always remember that being excused from class for another school activity is a privilege you must earn.

Attendance and Tardy Policy

  1. You are considered tardy if you are not in your seat by the time the bell stops ringing.
  2. It is your responsibility to bring a written excuse from the teacher, counselor, or administrator who detained you by the end of the day if you expect an excused tardy.
  3. If you enter class after the bell has rung, sign the tardy sheet hanging by the door. If you fail to do so, you will remain marked as absent for that day.
  4. Unexcused Absences: Participation points will be “0” and cannot be made up. Work will be due the same day as the rest of the class and will be late if turned in after class due date.
  5. If you are more than 10 minutes late you have to come to class with a note. If you don’t’, you will be sent back to the office to check-in and get one. A “3” will be in your attendance record.
  6. If you are more than 30 minutes late, you must have a note and you will remain marked as absent for the period.

PLEASE MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO BE TO CLASS ON TIME AND EXCUSE ALL ABSENCES!!!

  2. You will be expected to keep all of your assignments and handouts.
