Tardiness • Students who arrive late will require a pass to be admitted to class. Those “unexcused” will receive a warning for the first offense, then campus clean up for the second offense. See student planner for more information.

Survival Guide The UMS Planner – a GREAT resource • All students are expected to write down homework assignments in their planner. • If there is NO homework, I have them write that down that as well. Every section for every subject should have something written in it. • The planner is a great tool containing important information. Please refer to it often.
Classroom Rules • Water & bathroom trips • Supplies • Respecting Property • Respectful Community • Responsibility
Powerschool • Grades are available on Powerschool • Login instructions are available in the Student Planner on page 5. • If you don’t know your username/password, please contact Mrs. Adams at email@example.com • https://powerschool.unionsd.org
