Lateness is not tolerated. If I have to be in class on time, YOU have to be in class on time.
What happens when you're late:
Come in quietly.
If you have a note, you're lucky. Sit quickly and quietly, take out your book and start working.
If you don't have a note...
Sit quickly and quietly, take out your book and start working. You will get:
First and second offense: Warning
Third offense: Parent/Guardian contacted, quick meeting with me
Fourth offense: Slip filled out, Mr. Lawrence gets involved
Fifth offense: Slip filled out, Mr. Lawrence gets involved, after school detention with me
One student out at one time. Place the pass over your head and sign out. Note that the sign outs will be collected by the administration at the end of the week.
Students are asked to do their homework every time it is assigned.
Homework is an appropriate way to assess your ability to carry over what you learned in class to the outside world.
Parents, please work with your child and take an active part in their learning-- they will benefit greatly from parent involvement!
