TEAM EXPECTATIONS:

Our team expects the following expectations to be followed by every student:

  • Students will arrive to class on time and be seated immediately.
  • Students will treat all classroom furniture, materials and supplies with respect.
  • Students will use provided technology (i.e. computers) appropriately or may be subject to a loss of privileges.  
  • Students will treat peers, teachers, and staff members with respect at all times.
  • Students will not use personal devices in class unless special permission by a teacher has been given. (see cell phone policy)
  • Students will obey the rules listed in the GMS Student Handbook.
  • Students will be able to use the restroom or go to their lockers with a teacher’s permission. Students will be encouraged to use the restroom and go to their lockers during hall break; therefore, using a hall pass should be for emergency situations only.

ABSENT/LATE WORK POLICY:

Each teacher reserves the right to deal with specific late work and make-up work issues on a case by case basis. Extra copies of assignments will be provided in the classroom (and sometimes on the teacher’s webpage). The general rules that will apply are as follows:

  • If you are absent, it is YOUR responsibility to obtain any missed work, notes or homework. Check your teachers’ websites when you are out.
  • When absent, you have 2 days to make up the work or else it will be considered late.
  • Late assignments can be deducted up to 50%.
  • Late work will be accepted until the end of each quarter.
 

CELL PHONE POLICY:

Cell phones are not permitted in classrooms. All students will be provided with their own laptops this year; therefore, personal devices are not needed to enhance learning in the classroom. If a cell phone is brought into the classroom, teachers on this team will adhere to the following building policy:

  • The cell phone will be taken to the office until the end of the school day.
 

RESTROOM/DRINK/LOCKER POLICY:

Students will be encouraged to use the restroom and visit their lockers in between classes. However, for emergency situations, teachers can allow students to leave the classroom with a hall pass. Students will not be permitted to take their cell phones with them. Students will need to sign out with a timestamp before leaving the classroom. If a student is abusing hall pass privileges or not utilizing class-change/hall-break time wisely, a teacher can decide to not allow any student leave the classroom.
