 Mr. Murphy’s
    LAWS


      FOR
STRESS-LESS CLASS
When you first get to class….
• Sit down at your seat and copy the agenda off
the overhead in to your planner.
• Bring me any notes from the office if you are
leaving early or have an excused absence.
Excused absences should check red folder for
make-up assignments.
• Turn in your homework in the blue basket
next to my desk.
• Wait quietly at your desk until the late bell
rings.
                     Absentee Policy
 All students are expected to attend school regularly to get
                maximum benefit from class.
• Illness is considered an excused absence from school. All
other reasons must be approved by the school.
• Excused students are expected to turn in make up work
the day after from returning to class. Work due on the date
of your absence is due when you return.
  Please refer to your student handbook and
  note that excessive absenteeism will have
  a severe impact on your grades and could
               lead to expulsion.
If you are late to class…
• Report to the front office.
• Give the secretary a note signed by a parent
explaining why you are late.
• You will be given a pass admitting you in to class.
• If it is unexcused, you will not be allowed to
make up any work that was missed.


Beginning with the third tardy in a quarter, a student will
be given an automatic detention for each tardy to school.
Excessive tardies could result in a parent conference and, if
necessary, suspension. See your student handbook for
further details.
         When can you leave this room?

• You must have the hall pass for bathroom, water
  fountain, or locker visits.
• Only one person is allowed to leave the room at
  a time.
• If you are leaving school early, a note must be
  given to me BEFORE class begins.
• Anyone who abuses this policy by wandering
  around with the hall pass will lose all privileges
  of the pass, and have to take care of such
  business in between classes.
