  • Failure to join out break out groups
  • Sharing cameras
  • Having conversations with others (at home) while lesson is happening
  • Doing other things (ie; chatting, video games, texting etc)
  • Laying in bed
  • Falling asleep

These (and other unacceptable behaviors listed in the Family Handbook) are reasons for removal from the class for the reminder of that class period. Students who are removed from class will receive NO CREDIT for that day's work. In addition, parents will receive a phone call, informing them of these occurrences. A special Family Conference may be needed.
