Class Rules*

  • Assignments are accepted late for a penalty of -5 for each day that the assignment is tardy. Late work is not accepted after three days or once the assignment is handed back to the class after it is graded. See teacher/s if needed.

  • When students are absent, they have two days for each day they are absent to make up the work (district policy).

  • After students are absent, they are to check “Make-Up Work” bin upon entering the classroom (for missed assignments/work).

Class rules1
*Class Rules…

  • Aside from checking the make-upbin in the classroom, students should look on school wires (CHS website- teachers- Christine Amorin- English 3) for work when they are absent. Students are not excused from assignments when they are absent. Students are also welcome to e-mail teacher regarding schoolwork.

  • The homework board always lists assignments and their due date. Students are recommended to write HW in planner.

  • When assignments are due, the assignment is to be prepared BEFORE class. Students are not to go to media center during class time to print assignments. E-mail assignment if needed. If it is e-mailed, we will definitely receive it; no excuses.

Class rules2
*Class rules…

  • Many assignments are to be typed. If students are told to type an assignment, and they hand write it, five points are taken off grade.

  • Computer lab is available before and after school. You may be given a pass during lunch if needed.

  • It is expected that students are respectful to both their teachers and peers. Be mindful of others who may have different opinions and beliefs. As the saying goes,

    “Treat others how you would like to be treated!”
