    Every day is important! Your success in this course is directly related to how often you are present. Students are expected to log in on time and spend the entire class time online.  If you are absent, it is your responsibility to get the work and notes that you missed. Your teacher will not remind you to make up assignments. If you miss any class the day before a test and return the day of the test, you will be expected to take the test as scheduled.  It is the student’s responsibility to request and schedule any make up tests.

    Woodcrest JHS has implemented the PBIS (Positive Behavior Support) program for student discipline. The PBS program works to reward students that are making Positive Behavioral choices. Students are receiving instructions specific to behaviors in an effort to inform them of the expectations. We ask for your support as we continue to make Woodcrest JHS focused on high expectations for learning and behavior! By following the three basic principles, Be Responsible, Be Respectful, and Be Safe, students can easily avoid problems and be successful on our campus. Students are expected to demonstrate the appropriate behaviors at all times on campus, at school activities, and to and from school.
