Absences/Discipline:Absences: When your child is absent, he or she is responsible for making up the work. Students need to check their desktop when they return. Missing assignments are also listed on the whiteboard at the front of the classroom. Students have the same number of days they were absent to complete assignments. For example, if John misses 2 days of school, he would have 2 days after he returned to school to complete the work. Many of our classroom activities cannot be done at home (group work, experiments, in-class activities, buddy activities, etc.), so regular attendance is encouraged. If your child is absent, plan to pick up their missed work at the end of the day so he/she will not get too far behind.
Discipline: It is my intent to establish and maintain a non-disruptive learning atmosphere:
- A safe environment in which students may experience success both academically and socially.
- An environment that fosters respect for self, others, school, and the community.
- A positive environment in which good citizenship and self-discipline is practiced.
