Dear Students and Parents/Guardians:


Welcome to Health! Please review the course requirements below, and visit the William Floyd School District teacher website at https://sites.google.com/a/wfsd.k12.ny.us/msdgrammenos/ for current homework, projects, announcements, and more. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel to call me at any time at 874-1465 or email me at dgrammenos@wfsd.k12.ny.us


1. Supplies:

Students are required to bring a few sharpened pencils, a few blue or black ink pens and loose-leaf paper to class every day. If unprepared students are to obtain supplies from the teacher only. This is to ensure the least amount of disruption to other students and the class. If students borrow a pen or pencil from the teacher, it’s their responsibility to return it.

2. Grading and Extra Help:

Student quarter grades are based on 60% Classwork and Participation, 10% Home Work, and 30% Assessments. Participation includes getting to class on time, being prepared, and following directions the first time given and all classroom and school policies. Five points will be deducted from graded class work, homework, and assessments if a student writes in anything other than regular blue or black ink or a pencil. This is to help prepare students for the future to be college and or career ready! The final grade is based on 20% of each quarter grade and 20% of the final exam. Students may come for extra help during their lunch period.

3. Absences:

If students are absent, they are expected to obtain homework to be graded from the box in the classroom labeled “Home Work” at the start or end of the period. Students are to turn in make up homework at the start of the next class unless a later due date is stated on the assignment.

4. Late Assignments:

Ten points will be taken off if assignments are turned in late, and as per the student handbook: “Unless a student has extenuating circumstances, which the administration has approved, all students will have one week to hand in late assignments. Late assignments will not be accepted after one week and the student will receive a grade of 0%.”

5. Lateness:

As per school policy, students are expected to be at their assigned location at the start of the period. If students arrive with a pass they are to turn it in upon arrival to class and will not be marked late. If students arrive without a pass, they will be marked late. If a student is marked late three times a parent or guardian will be notified. A fifth lateness will be reported to the Assistant Principal.

6. Classroom Policy:

- Students are expected to enter the classroom quietly and quietly and independently work on the "Do Now" assignment. If any classwork is completed early, students are to read health related material only. This includes “Enrichment” materials in one of several boxes in the classroom (only one student per box).

- Unless it’s an emergency, students are to ask for passes to leave the room after the 1st 10 or before the last 10 minutes of class during group or independent work only and only one student at a time.

- Unless it’s an emergency, students are to raise their hands and wait to be called up or on.

- We Recycle. Students are expected to keep paper garbage uncrumpled and please place it in the “Recycle” box at the end of the period.

7. School Policy:

Students are to bring only required materials to class and keep hats and hoods off.
