· Please write your first AND last name, class period and date on ALL assignments.

Tardy Procedure-

· You are expected to be in your desk, when the tardy bell rings. 

· If you are tardy, sign the Tardy Sheet on the table by the door.

· Consequences (per six weeks) are as follows: 

> 1st Offense: Warning

> 2nd Offense: Teacher D-Hall

> 3rd+ Offense: Office Referral


Absent Work-

· YOU are responsible for getting work you missed while not in class.  Check the assignment sheet and anything handed out in class will be filed by date underneath the assignment sheet.  For example, if you missed class on Tuesday the 19th, check the file labeled 19.

· Complete absent work promptly, including work due the day you were gone.  Write “ABSENT” across the top of your paper and turn into your class period tray.

· Come in during Stampede if you need help with absent work.

· YOU are responsible for making up missed tests/quizzes during Stampede, or before or after school.  Schedule a time with me if necessary.
