Students must attend the virtual class on a device that allows for video and audio participation and must be on screen for the duration of the class time. Students must participate with their audio and video on during the entire class period. Any unexcused, extended time off camera will result in the student receiving an absence from the class.

Any student who logs onto the virtual classroom from their car will be immediately removed from the classroom and will not receive credit for the class hours.
