Inform the teacher if you are having difficulties

An honest attempt at an assignment, even if it is wrong, is better than no attempt     at all

Respect others

If you are absent you are responsible to find out what you missed. Make up work must be handed in within the same number of days as your absence from school. (this rule applies to quizzes and tests )

Failure to meet deadlines will result in a 10% drop in your grade each day an assignment is overdue.(this rule applies to quizzes and tests)

Follow all policies outlined in The Shikellamy Student Handbook.
