Classroom procedures do not carry penalties or rewards. Procedures are not rules, they are a DO.
Note *(I reserve the right to adjust or add procedures to accomadate for the best learning experience for my students).Attendance is taken while students work on bellwork. In the event a student is tardy they are to follow the school sites policies and procedures.

Drinking bottles (water only) may be brought to class and kept at your desk. The bottles must have a pull top to prevent spills. Water bottles must be taken home daily and brought back the following day with fresh water from home.
