Classroom Rules

All of the rules from the student handbook apply to our classes.  In addition to those, there are three rules we stress for our classroom:

  1. Be on time
  2. Be prepared for class
  3. Be respectful of all people and property


Failure to follow these rules will result in these consequences:

  1. verbal remediation
  2. change of seat
  3. parent contact
  4. referral



Absences and make-up work

If a student is excused one day then that student is allowed three days to make up the work missed. It is the student’s responsibility to attain missed assignments/work.  The best time to see Mrs. Gordon about missed work is before school or after school.
