A WORD ABOUT SAFETY
Shop safety is an area of prime importance to all instructors. Students will be working around and operating machinery and equipment which require full and undivided attention to the task at hand. For that reason, failure to follow safety rules and practices, horseplay, and other types of undesirable behavior cannot AND WILL NOT BE TOLERATED in shop classes.
Depending on the type of shop safety infraction, the consequences may range from a warning, parental notification by letter, to removal from the class for the safety of all concerned. In the event removal from the class is the outcome, the student should not expect to receive a grade or credit from that class as a safety hazard to yourself and to others, arrangements will be made for that period the remainder of the grading period, or you will be sent home.
Again, shop safety is a serious matter and any violation of shop safety rules and practices shall not be taken lightly. If you cannot follow your teacher’s directions, obey class rules, and be sensible in what you do, and Ag or Industrial arts class is not for you and you should not sign up.
