    Restroom  Policy:  In general, restrooms and water fountains are to be used between passing periods, during MegaLunch, etc., and not during class. To accommodate emergencies, at the beginning of the semester, FOUR (4) “Pass-or-Points Tickets” will be issued to each student. Each ticket is SINGLE USE item. Students may redeem a ticket for a pass to the restroom or attach it to any assignment, including tests (but not the semester exam) for a 10 point bonus. The ticket must be physically present at the time of use. Students that do not have a ticket, lost their ticket, or already used all of them will not be allowed to use the restroom during class. Unused fall semester tickets carry over to the spring semester.

    Note from the Instructor: “Pass-or-Points Tickets” are valid only for this World History class. The Instructor reserves to right to suspend, revoke, or alter the use of the the tickets at his discretion.

     

    Electronic Device Policy: Cell phones and other electronic devices are to remain out of sight, not in use, and silent unless used for teacher approved instructional purposes. In accordance with Alvin ISD policy stated in the student handbook:

    If a student uses a telecommunications device without authorization during the school day, the device will be confiscated. The parent may pick up the confiscated telecommunications device from the principal’s office for a fee of $15.”

     

    Food and Drink Policy: Food and non-water drinks are not allowed. Water in a clear bottle is acceptable.
