    ATTENDANCE AND TARDIES

    Regular attendance is very important in order to keep up in a foreign language classroom.  Students should arrive on time.  If a student is tardy, he/she will not be admitted to class without a pass from the tardy station.  If a student misses more than 10 minutes of a class, he/she is counted absent.

     

    REMOTE LEARNERS:      If you cannot livestream during your class period, you will have until 11:59 pm to view uploaded lesson and complete online assignment or YOU WILL BE COUNTED ABSENT.

     

    In person learners: PLEASE STAY HOME IF YOU ARE NOT FEELING WELL. YOU CAN LOGIN AND LIVESTREAM FROM HOME THAT DAY😊. YOUR HEALTH COMES FIRST-YOU WILL NOT FALL BEHIND!

     

    ABSENCE/LATE WORK

    One class day per day of absence is allowed for makeup work for excused absences.  It is the student's responsibility to ask for any make-up work after an absence.

    If you know you will be absent, please check with me ahead of time to pick up your work.  If you are absent for an extended period of time, contact the counselors for your assignments.

     

    On major projects/papers late work will be accepted on the following grading scale: 

    1st day-50 points

     

     

    TESTS AND GRADING-EVEN DAYS ONLY

    Tests will be given regularly.  All students present will take the test.  Any tests missed due to absences must be made up within one day per consecutive day of absence.

                            Daily work - regular classes - 40%

                            Major grades - regular classes - 60%

     

    Semester grade - average of the two nine-weeks grades + final exam.  Final exam is 20% of the semester average.

     

    You are permitted 3 days to redo Tests and/or Quizzes with grades below a 70%. It is your responsibility to come to me and make arrangements. You may only do this twice every 9 weeks-so choose wisely.
