Behavior


Students are expected to have all necessary resources in class each day, and to be in class on time in the
morning and after breaks each day.

could result in JUG, withdrawal and failure of the course, up to dismissal from Brophy.
Attendance

course for the summer session and are subject to dismissal without refund. No student is permitted to
miss the final day of the course without written permission from the teacher or the Assistant Principal
