Skipping - Classes missed without a legitimate reason
are considered skipped classes and will result in the appropriate
consequences including contacting parents and receiving a grade
of zero for any course work from the missed period.
Lates - Students who arrive late to class will be given
a one-time reprieve. Any subsequent lates will result in detentions
and contacting of parents.
Incomplete Homework - Any homework assignments not completed
on time will result in the student receiving a grade of zero on
Cell Phones & Pagers - Cell phones and pagers are
not permitted in the classroom at any time. Cell phones found
in class will be confiscated until a time in which a parent or
guardian can arrange to pick up the cell phone.
Plagiarism - Any student found having practiced plagiarism
on any assignment throughout the year will automatically receive
a grade of zero on the assignment and may be subject to further
disciplinary actions. Refer to page 15 of the Colonel By Student/Parent
Handbook for further information.
Assignments/Tests Missed Due to Absence - All deadlines
for assignments are set well in advance of the date they are to
be submitted and are clearly expressed to students and parents
via this website. Students are expected to make appropriate arrangements
if they are aware of upcoming absences from class. Unexpected
absences are an inevitability. In the case of an unexpected absence,
students are expected to contact Mr. Dempsey as soon as possible
to submit any late assignments and to collect any new work they
may have missed.
Students are given the opportunity to submit course work up
until the date that Mr. Dempsey returns graded assignments to
those students who submitted their work on the assigned due date.
After those assignments have been returned, no further late assignments
can be submitted for grading. Those students who do not submit
an assignment will receive a grade of zero for those assignments.
