Class norms/expectations* 

Students are expected to be Punctual, Prepared, Polite, Positive, Productive.

Late work*

All assignments are expected on their assigned due dates at the beginning of class in the correct bin.  If you are absent on a due date, the work is expected on the day of your return.  If you are on campus but not in class, your work still must be handed in on time.  Anything that needs to be printed must be done before school or at lunch, not after the class bell rings.  Do not turn in work to my mailbox in the front office.  All late work will be penalized by 50%, no matter how late it is turned in.  You will receive one, one-day amnesty pass per semester as a safety net.  No work will be accepted after three school days past the due date. 

Tardies and Absences*

McCallum's policies for tardies and absences are in effect and will be enforced without exception.  If you are absent on the day of a test or in-class assignment you will complete the assignment on the day of your return, unless discussed otherwise with me.  It is your responsibility to keep track of assignments on the class assignment calendar you miss during your absence and to make up class work.  If you forget to make up any graded work, and the late window closes, you will earn a zero.  Most assignments and handouts will be posted and available on my teacher webpage for downloading and printing.  Use email, communicate with me when absent for arrangements.
