Students are to know and follow the St. Tammany Parish and Salmen
High School rules, regulations, and procedures set forth in the
Parish handbook and the Salmen agenda book. Students and parents
should review the 2012-2013 handbooks thoroughly because there
have been additions and changes to previous school-year policies,
most notably, the absence policy.
Students are to come to class prepared every day for classwork.
All supplies identified by the teacher are to accompany the
student each day in addition to any homework and/or preparatory
Students are expected to learn and follow procedures and
guidelines set forth by the teacher to establish and maintain an
effective, safe, and pleasant learning environment for all

class and from assigned resource material, such as the text,
Students are to engage in a two-phase study approach daily:
complete class and homework assignments AND study all notes and
material to develop a richer understanding of science and the
connections between all subjects within the discipline. This
approach provides students with the background necessary to be
more critical thinkers and more aggressive problem solvers.
Students are to use agenda books and/or notebooks to record
assignment and test requirements and submission dates. Failure
to make such notations or to read them is not grounds for
extending assignment or test dates.
All work is to be turned in on or before the last submission
All classwork and tests are to be made up within two days of
returning to class after an excused absence. Extended illnesses
necessitate a meeting between the student, parent(s), and teacher
in order to establish a schedule for make-up work and tests.
Because course material is taught and learned over a week or
more, a one-day absence before an assignment submission date or a
test date is not grounds for not having the assignment or for not
taking the assigned test.
