1. Turn off cell phones
· Cell Phones should be turned off and invisible during the class period. If I see or hear your phone it will be taken away and given to an administrator, according to cell phone policy outlined in the FHS handbook. Refusal to turn over the cell phone will be treated as insubordinate behavior.
2. No food or drink
3. Arrive to class on time & ready to learn
· When the bell rings, you need to be sitting in your assigned seat.
· You should immediately begin on the warm up activity or journal entry.
· Be “physically” and “mentally” present in the classroom
4 Use polite and appropriate language
· Offensive, derogatory, and profane terms are not tolerated. In order to have a safe classroom environment where all students feel comfortable, no put downs, swear words, or slang words with demeaning connotations will be accepted. Remember, if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say it at all
5. Do your best work & turn it in on time
The procedures will depend on the severity of the offense(s). Serious infractions will result in automatic removal from classroom and an office referral.
