8. If possible—access to a printer at home. If printing documents is an issue for you, then that’s fine. Just share the document with me or email me the attachment in advance (i.e. the night before the due date).

9. A constructive approach to everything you do, whether you are a student, parent, or teacher reading this. This is not a repeat of item #1. It’s just that important to your success as a student or parent, and our success as a district.
