Instructions for the Student

 
  • Before class begins, please remember that we must all follow the School's Acceptable Use Policy (AUP), Handbook Policies, Honor Code, as well as our classroom expectations at all times.
  • Please complete the account set-up and orientation process before leaving school.  Be sure you enter your first and last name for attendance during the set-up process.
  • Establish a daily routine for your school work.  
  • Find a comfortable, distraction-free room in the house to work, preferably not the bedroom. If a bedroom must be used, please do not be in your bed.
  • Create a workstation at a table or a desk for class.  Sit in a seat that is on camera so that your instructor can see you.
  • Use appropriate lighting in your room so the teacher and your classmates can see your face.
  • Be on time for class. Your teacher will take class attendance/tardies for School records.  
  • Attendance is expected. If for any reason you miss class, it is your responsibility to make up the work.
  • Dress Code:  TBS uniform polo shirt must be in view and your video must be left on at all times for you to be counted present in class. 
  • You must stay for the entire class with your camera on to be counted present for the class.  Please do not leave class before the teacher closes the session.  This will be counted as an absence.

  • Your teacher will respond to questions during class time or at a later point in the school day.  
  • Follow your teacher’s directions to turn in classwork.  Put forth your best effort, as these grades will “count.”

  • Classes will follow the schedule posted below.
