- The percentages above are prior to the inclusion of a year-end semester exam.
Students should keep cell phones out of sight and with the volume turned off. They are not to be used during class. On occasion, the teacher may announce a reason for students to use (or be allowed to use) a phone. They are NOT to be used otherwise. Consequences may include... tracking incidents of not follwing this rule, asking a cell phone to be left on the teacher's desk if a student can not avoid the temptation, calling a parent, or more extreme measures like a detention or requesting help from the office for a consequence.
Late work is tracked using a form as shown below. It is not the teacher's job to remind students of late work but she will do so as she is able.
- When a student’s absence is unexcused, the student may receive little to no credit for makeup work.
- The student is responsible for inquiring about, getting, or making up whatever s/he has missed during an absence. If a student has been absent for only one or two days, the teacher may require the student to be caught up and prepared for any work such as a quiz, an assignment or a pre-announced test when s/he returns, if the student had prior knowledge of said assignment.
- Students are responsible for making up missed work. The teacher is not responsible for making sure the student knows what s/he missed during an absence.
- If a student misses a test or quiz, it is the student’s responsibility to talk to Mrs. Satterlee promptly to determine when the exam should be completed.
- Students who miss school for only a portion of the day are in charge of getting their assignment and having it completed and ready for submission by the regular class due date.
- Students who miss school for a school-related activity or any other foreseen event are in charge of getting their assignment prior to their absence and having it completed and ready for submission by the regular class due date.
- Exceptions can always be made in the case of emergencies.
- If any rules outlined above are found to be in contradiction to an updated version of the student handbook, the student handbook will prevail.
