  • Be on time

  • Be respectful
  • Be honest
  • Be doers
  • When you are absent, you MUST turn in an excuse to Mrs. Wilkinson, the attendance clerk, within two days of your absence or an unexcused absence will be recorded. Only three parent excuses are allowed per nine weeks.
  • Every unexcused absence will require that you attend Saturday School, and you will receive a zero for ALL work assigned on the day of the absence.
  • Assignments missed due to school-sponsored activities should be completed before the absence occurs.
unexcused absences
  • You will be assigned Saturday School for every unexcused absence that you receive.
make up work
  • If you have an excused absence, the due date of the work assigned will be extended by one day.
  • Any assignment made prior to your absence will be due on the given date or upon your return.
  • It is your responsibility to get all make-up assignments.
tardy to class
  • You are considered tardy if you are not in the classroom when the tardy bell begins to ring.
  • After two tardies in any class period, each subsequent tardy will result in one day of ISS.
grading system
  • Homework is graded using Homework Quizzes.

* Homework is 20% of your class average.
