    Absences – As per the student handbook that both you and your parent’s signed that you understand and will abide the policies: “When a student is absent from school it is the student's responsibility to communicate with their teachers via email or check assignments posted on the teacher website. Although students are encouraged to keep up with assignments while absent, the student has two school days upon returning to make up any work missed. It is the student's responsibility to take the initiative in arranging for makeup work. However, if a student is absent on the day of a test and he or she has not been absent for work covered on the test, he or she is expected to be prepared to take the test upon returning.”

    Supplies – See the website for a specific list.  Basic supplies include: Text (provided by school), notebook, notebook paper, graph paper, pencils, erasers, ruler, and a scientific calculator or a Graphing Calculator (TI-nSpire or TI-84 Plus Graphing Calculator is recommended).  AP Calculus students- Your course requires a graphing calculator.

    Extra Help/ Time –I am always available to students for extra help after school from 2:30-3:00.  I will alert students when I am unavailable for help.  Students should see me for other arrangements.  The Spartan Period is also available for students to receive extra help.

    Final Grade – Please see the syllabus for specifics about grade calculation.
