     Classroom Procedures

     (In conjunction with the Technology Procedures)

     Beginning classroom procedures

    •  Be in seat and logged onto computer when tardy bell rings.
      •  Sit in your assigned seat.
      •  Use only your log in ID and password.  Do not share this info w/ classmates

     Leaving classroom

    •  Students are not allowed to leave the classroom unless they have a note from their house office.
      • If you have a note to leave for an appointment, this letter must be taken to your house office prior to class time, you then will receive a slip from your house office to leave at the time in which you need to leave.
    • Restroom breaks
      • A student will be allowed only 3 times to leave the classroom for a restroom break during each nine weeks.  Students are encouraged to use the restroom between passing periods.  A student will be given 3 passes every nine weeks in which they can use to leave the classroom for this purpose.  Once the student uses up their 3 passes, they will not be allowed to leave the classroom, unless it is an emergency or they have a doctor’s note.  At the end of the nine weeks the students can turn in their unused passes for extra credit (10 pt. each towards a daily grade) Students are encouraged to use wise decisions in this manner.
    • Leaving the classroom to go to a student’s house office, pay lunch money, or any other business will not be tolerated unless they have a pass from their house office or they are on a Student Activity Excused List.
