          emergency during class, remember:  I DO NOT TEACH IN THE
          BATHROOM!!

2.     CHEATING:  do not do it!  If you choose to do it both you and the 
          person who allowed it will get a zero (0) for the assignment (remember, 
          copying someone else’s homework is cheating!)

3.      ABSENCES:  It is the student’s responsibility to obtain the work they 
          missed. 

If you are absent:

·        It is your responsibility to get your work or assignments

·        You get 1 day to turn in your work for every day out (if absent 2
        days you have 2 days from the date of return to turn in work or it is
        considered late)

·        Any work NOT turned in on time will be counted as a  “0”

·        If you leave school before science or come in after science
        assignments must still be turned in that day and you MUST get   
        any  homework assignment…YOU WERE IN SCHOOL THIS
        DAY!!!!!!

Late assignments

·      Work turned in 1 day late MAY be accepted and graded for partial
          credit

·          If work is due at the start of class, once I begin to teach…it is late!
