Wait to be greeted before entering the classroom.

Begin your bell work immediately and silently.
If you are tardy:
You are late if you are not inside the classroom when the bell rings.
Go to AP office to receive a tardy pass.

If you need to talk to me, see me after class or at an appropriate time.
If you are absent:

You have one day for each day you were absent to make up your assignments.

If you know ahead of time that you will be absent, please let me know, so I can give you the work you will miss.
