Textbook and other Books


The books are your responsibility; if you lose one you will be responsible for the cost of the book at its condition when issued to you. It must be returned when you are finished the course.


You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.” Abraham Lincoln

Make up Assignments

Students who are absent are responsible to make up the work they missed within three (3) days from their return. Handouts and other teacher-supplied materials will be placed in the bin at the back of the room. Notes should be copied from another student outside of class. Students can also make arrangements with the teacher to stay after school to obtain the notes from the teacher. Tests and Quizzes must be made-up after school and may not be in the same format as the original test.

Students are to turn in all work on the date it is due. Deductions will be made for all work turned in late.
