Attendance and Dress Code: Students are expected to know the rules for attendance and dress code specified in the handbook.

Leaving During Class: The students have a break approximately every 50 minutes, so they will need to get all materials for class during that break. Restrooms should be visited between classes as well.

Homework: Homework will be assigned for review and comprehension purposes. If class time is used wisely, there should not be a lot of written homework. Make sure to read and study notes and guides.

Makeup Work: Students will have 3 days to make up missed assignments. This is the student’s responsibility to get missed assignments and needed materials.

Binders: The binders are very important and will be used every day. Everything will have a place and this will be used each day in class and used to study at home. Binder check will be graded. 

Rules and Consequences: Refer to the Middle School Policy Form for rules and consequences.
