Use of Electronic Devices

Cell Phones should be turned off or on “silent” and stored away during class. If you are observed using a phone during instructional time you will receive a warning for the first violation; each subsequent violation will result in a 5 point deduction from your final grade. Anticipated emergency calls are exempt, but inform me before class and relocate near the door so as to disturb the class minimally. The use of a laptop or tablet devices during instructional time is not permitted. If any of these forbidden activities are observed, the student may be required to leave the classroom immediately. There will be no makeup for any work, quiz, or examination you may miss after your departure.
