Professional attendance and participation continue to be part of the grade:

         Students are ready to begin work right at the scheduled class time.

         Always inform the teacher ahead of time, of absences or tardies.

         After the second absence, the grade is dropped by 1/2 a letter per additional absence.

         After the second tardy, the grade is dropped by 1/2 a letter per additional two tardies.

         Any missed assignment must be made up, and it is the responsibility of the student to schedule this with the teacher.

         Any missed information must be attained from schoolmates.

         Late written assignments drop by 1/2 grade per day late.


Welcome back, and on we go!
