PowerSchool is a secure web-based system. With an internet connection you can get school information such as grades and attendance, about your child anytime.
You can connect from home, the office, the public library, or from any other computer with Internet access.
A written excuse must be turned in to me within 3 days of your child's absence.

Missed class work and homework must be made up.
Daily schedule reflects the day number rather than the day of the week.

Posters will be displayed throughout the school and classroom to remind you what day of the schedule it is.
Classroom Procedures
Bathroom/Water Fountain
We will only take one bathroom break as a class.
All other times students are to ask during non-direct instructional time.
Students are encouraged to keep water bottles at their desks because water fountain trips are limited.
Pencil Sharpening
Pencils should be sharpened in the morning or afternoon ONLY.
Cleanliness (desk, floor, locker, etc.)
Students are expected to be neat.
Desks should be cleared at dismissal.
Missed Class (Band practice, sick, etc.)
It is the responsibility of the student to find out what they missed, hand in homework, check mailboxes, etc.
Homework Policy

Homework will be assigned nightly (Including some Fridays).
Unfinished or forgotten homework will be recorded and students will complete during recess.
If a student completes all homework assignments in a week they may participate in Homeworkopoly for that week.
Homework should be copied into planners each day.
Homework should take about 45 min. to 1 hr.
