Leaving the room:

  • Wait for the teacher to finish before leaving the room.  Stay in your seat until dismissed.

  • NEVER line up at the door.

  • Personal business should be taken care of between classes if at all possible.  You will be issued 3 hall passes per quarter. You must present one to the teacher to leave the room.  If you lose them, too bad.

  • Only one student will be allowed out of the room at a time.

  • Replace textbooks under desks and other materials, including lining up desks, where you found them.

  • Sign out any classroom set textbooks, if needed.


Late work:

  • Late work is always accepted, but CANNOT receive full credit.

  • Credit will be determined by the number of days late and/or if the lateness was due to an excused absence.


Computer Lab Behavior:

    – No surfing the web without permission.

    -  Do not change any screen settings, defaults, etc. Abuse of computers and/or not following lab guidelines may result in loss of lab privileges and/or office referrals.

    -  Food or drinks should not be near the computers

    -  Students must obey Mrs. Brewer/Mrs. Whitney/Mrs. Cosby as well as the teacher.    


Behavior for Substitute Teachers:

  • Students should follow the same procedures, policies, and have the same expectations whenever there is a substitute teacher due to Mrs. Browning being out for personal, or business, reasons.



  • A reminder (warning) will be given. Failure to correct the behavior in a timely fashion will result in lunch detentions and/or office referrals. Consequences are doubled if there was a substitute.

  • Arguing with the teacher after reminders or punishments have been issued will only further your consequences.
