    Classroom Policies:

    1)  Attendance taken each day. You will be marked late if you walk in after the bell without a pass. If you are late to class, remember that 4 lates =1 absence. You are allowed 20 absences for a full year class, 10 for a half/year class. After that you will lose credit for the class.

    2)  After attendance is taken, I will check the entire class for uniform violations. If you are not in accordance with uniform policy, you will be removed from class and sent to ACS.

    3)  Cell phones may not be taken out in class for any reason. If I see your cell phone, I will ask you to place it on my desk. There are no warnings. If you refuse to place the phone on the desk, you will be removed from class and you will receive a one day in-school suspension from your vice-principal.

    4)  Please raise your hand if you wish to speak or ask a question.
