Classroom Restrictions

NO: cell phones, PEDs or food

General Homework Expectations

Most assignments can be finished in class if students manage their time responsibly; “homework” will  typically be to complete any assignment not finished in class.  Larger projects will be assigned periodically throughout the year.  Parents and students will be notified well in advance of deadlines for larger assignments and projects.

Support at Home

Check assignments and announcements posted here and/or on Canvas. Check for any work categorized as "Overdue" on Canvas and ensure it is completed and submitted.
