A (93% and above
F (59.9% and Below)
LATE OR MAKE-UP WORK:Assignments and tests must be turned in on the due date to receive full credit.Late assignments/test will be accepted for an additional two weeks with a 25% reduction for the first week late and a 50% reduction for the second week late, past the due date.After the second week of being late, the assignment/test will receive no points.
EXTRA CREDIT: There will be opportunities throughout the semester for extra credit through various activities. There are also extra credit opportunities for home cooking, to encourage cooking in the home. Do not ask for alternative extra credit opportunities.
BELL RINGERS:At the beginning of class, there will sometimes be a question or directions for you on the board for you to answer/follow. Complete bell ringer. If it is a question, write your name, the date, the question and the answer on a piece of paper. I will give a couple of minutes after the bell rings to answer it. We will discuss the answer, and then begin class. Keep track of your bell ringer paper in your journal. They will be graded at journal checks.
WORKBOOK(If applicable):I will provide a notebook for all students. This is where we will be taking most of our notes. After each unit, you will turn in the book so that notes can be graded. If a notebook is lost, the student must purchase another book for $10 AND fill in all of the note we have done in it up until that point. Do not lose your book. Workbook will not be graded without the correct tabs. They will receive a 0 even if it is completely filled out. The LATE POLICY will apply. Please refer to the LATE POLICY for more questions.
DURABLE TABS(If applicable):These are any tabs that can be permanently attached to divider sheets in the workbook. If they are easily removed, they will not work. Tabs are required to grade the workbook.
PORTAL: Students progress may be monitored through the portal website. Grades will be updated when new scores are available.
ATTENDANCE: School attendance is a privilege and is also mandatory under state law. Attending school is the responsibility of the student and his/her parents/guardian. Attendance will be handled in the same manner the school policy outlines.
If you are absent, it is your responsibility to contact me and get any makeup work. You may contact me before or after class, after school, or email.
*If the student knows they will be absent, and we are taking a test or an assignment is due that day, the student is responsible for making arrangements with the teacher in advance, either in person or by email, so that assignments are not graded as LATE.
TRUANCY: Students that are truant will receive a 0% on their classwork or assignments that were due on that day and they will not be able to make it up. Students will receive a truancy if student choses to leave class for any reason without permission, isn’t where student said they were going to be, or not coming to class when teacher is aware they were at school, but isn’t in class.
CHEATING: Cheating will not be tolerated. If a student is caught cheating, they will receive a 0% on the assignment/test given that day and cannot make it up.
LABS: All students are required to tie hair back that touches shoulders or longer. Students with a beard or mustache must wear a beard cover. I will supply ONE beard cover every term. Students are responsible for keeping track of the cover for the term. Students must wear an apron the entirety of class when there is a lab, unless specified by teacher. Students MUST wash their hands before cooking, during cooking and after cooking. If you are late to class or leave early on a lab day it is an automatic minus 15 points, either we started cooking or not. Cooking is a privilege, and they can be taken away. If labs are taken away, labs can be made-up at home but for partial credit. For more on labs, see ‘Lab Rules and Regulations’ section of disclosure.
MAKE-UP LABS: Labs cannot be made up for full points if student is not in class the day of the lab. The only exception is if it is a school excused absence, such as school sports or clubs. If the student brings in a doctor’s note, that will also be permitted. The reason behind this is because the student wasn’t there to work in their group, as a team, I cannot see the set up or the clean-up that was taught and required in a lab, and the student was not in class to learn and understand the purpose/main concept of the lab. The most a student can receive for a make-up is 40/50 points. Student must also have their face in the pictures to receive 40/50. If they are not in the picture, more points may be deducted for not following instructions.
MOVIE: ‘Supersize Me’ is a documentary made in 2004 that is ratedPG-13. This documentary may be shown in class for the purpose of helping students understand the dangers of frequently eating fast food. It is relevant to standards 3, 5, and 6 of the Utah State Standards for Foods and Nutrition 1. It is relevant to standard 5 of the Utah State Standards for Foods and Nutrition 2.
FOOD: Food made in class will not be thrown away. If food is thrown away, the entire group will not be able to participate in the next lab and they will not be able to make up food. So, eat the food you make. If you won’t eat something (like mushrooms) then don’t take it from the demo table.
HALL PASS: You are NOTallowed to use the bathroom during lectures, 15 minutes before/after the bell rings, or during 2nd lunch. DON’T ASK. To use the bathroom, you must ask the teacher. You cannot go to the bathroom if another student is using the bathroom. We are in a kitchen, if you need a drink, use a cup or fill your water bottle with the sink tap.You CANNOT use hall passes for water. You cannot use the hall pass to go to the vending machine or to go to the school store. If you do use it for those purposes, you will be marked truant because you were not where you were supposed to be.
BRINGING FOOD TO CLASS: Because this is a foods room, we do have a means and a way to clean up food. You can bring food to class as long as you clean up your area afterwards. If messes and clean-up become an issue, this privilege will be taken away.
FLEX PERIOD: If you would like to come to my class during flex time, and you are not taking a class, please get a note from me before coming to see me.
EO HOUR: EO hour is on Monday after school this year. Students are highly encouraged to use the time to come and get help with concepts and assignments they don’t understand or to make up tests and quizzes. Please take advantage of this time.
COMPENTENCY TEST: Students will take a State Competency final exam at the end of the semester. This exam must be taken at the scheduled time or the student may not take it to receive credit for it. The competency test will go on the student’s grade.
ACCOMODATIONS: If you have a disability that yay require accommodations, i.e. modification in testing, assignments, grading, etc., please contact me immediately (first week if possible). Accommodations will be made for all students with documented disabilities.
LETTERING: For information on lettering in Family and Consumer Science, please see Mrs. Blaisdell or Mrs. Arthur.
COMMUICAITON: Open communication between parents, students and teacher is important to me. I will update the portal, keeping it current with the most accurate information as grades become available. You may contact me by email or phone (476-3700).
