    GUIDELINES

    In order for Academic Lab to be a time that enables students to enhance their success, the following guidelines will be used:

     

    1.  Come in, place book bag on the table, get your reading material and have a seat. Students will remain in Ac Lab for the first 13 minutes for announcements, attendance and to prepare passes for “regular” and “directed travel”.  Travel will begin at 9:25 am.

    2.  “Regular travel” students must have passes signed and ready prior to coming Ac Lab.  All Ac Lab cards must be signed by the lab teachers prior to leaving the Lab.

    3.  Students must go directly to their requested destinations.  They are not to go to lockers, vending machines, restrooms, other parts of the school, or other teachers’ rooms unless noted on their Lab Pass.  Hall monitors will check your passes and cards.

    4.  Students will be expected to reach their scheduled destination within four (4) minutes.

    5.  Students who remain in their Lab classrooms must work quietly and respect others’ need to do the same.
