Latin Class Expectations:

2. Academic work is individual, unless instructed otherwise
3. Be respectful, kind, and have a positive attitude towards others
Consequences for not Meeting Class ExpectationsFailure to meet class expectations or breach of the Spartan Code will be met with consequences. Mr. Burrow will determine the consequence using his best judgment, evaluating both the seriousness and frequency of the event. All students will be treated fairly and equally. The following are possible consequences: verbal warning, parent contact, detention, and office visit.Blurting Out in Class
One of the most disruptive actions in a classroom is when someone blurts out while someone else is thinking or talking. Disrupting other students (or the teacher) is considered a serious sign of disrespect and will be disciplined accordingly. Students who do not respect other students (or the teacher) in this way will be given verbal warnings and (if necessary) detentions.
Leaving the Classroom
Students are allowed to leave the classroom three times each nine weeks for restroom, office, locker visit, etc. If a student needs to go to the nurse, or is called to the office, this does not count towards that number. If a student needs to leave after those three times, (s)he will be allowed to go only if it is an emergency.
