Absolutely NO talking during lessons.

Disturbance during class will NOT be tolerated. Cell phones, Ipods or any other electrical devices cannot be used during class. I ask that you either turn your cell phones off or put them on a vibrate mode. It is preferred that you leave them in your locker but it is NOT mandatory that you do so. Just keep in mind that your electronic devices can stay in class as long as they are put away and are NOT visible in open.
If you miss a class, you can make up the work within 24 hours of your return. Past the 24 hour period, the work will NOT be accepted. If you are absent for more than ten days in the term, you will be allowed to make up the work but will not receive credit (grade) for that work unless you have a medical reason for which you will be required to produce a doctor’s note.
Any behavioral issue will result in the student receiving a ZERO for that day’s classwork.
