It is crucial that students not leave class unless for an emergency. Restroom passes are
available, but students must work consistently during the first ten minutes of class before
getting permission to leave. Students who abuse the privilege of leaving for the restroom
might not be allowed to go during class time.

Class Procedures
Tutorials/Getting Help with Class
I will have tutorials in my room four times a week. You will need to made
an appointment at least 24 hours in advance, so I can make sure that I’m
in my room and have the materials ready for you. If you can’t attend my
regular tutorial hours, I can try to accommodate you by coming early or
staying late on another day.
At each progress report, I will assign
mandatory tutorials to anyone I identify who
could benefit from extra help and support for Morning Tutorials
at least three weeks (to be reevaluated with (T/Th) 7:45-8:25
the report card grade). Anyone with mandatory
tutorials will be required to attend at least Afternoon Tutorials
once a week. Any student who doesn’t attend (M/W) 3:55-4:30
will receive a detention and have to make up
the tutorial session.
When you come for tutorials, you will sign in and out. For those with
mandatory tutorials, failure to do so may result in you being counted
absent for that week. If you need to retake an assessment, you must
attend at least one half-hour tutorial session before retaking the test.
