Some components of this class require access to the internet outside of class time. If access to the internet outside of class is an issue please see me. We will arrange time at lunch or outside of the school day.
ALL reading for this class will be tested using short online quizzes that will happen outside of class on your own time. Reading notes are NOT REQUIRED, but strongly encouraged.

If your actions in class in any way violate the above rules, then you will be given an appropriate consequence. These can include a warning, a phone call home, a home visit, or other formal procedures.
Absences must be excused through the attendance secretary. Each unexcused absence will result in a “0” for any activities on that day. Students with excused absences will be expected to contact their fellow students regarding work missed. 2 or more unexcused absences during a 6 week grading period will result in a ‘U’ citizenship grade.
The citizenship grade on the 4th tardy in class during a grading period would be no higher than an “N.” Any additional tardies in the grading period would result in a “U.” Excessive tardiness may result in other consequences and disciplinary actions.
