Lab Safety Contract

All students are required to read, sign, and have their parent/guardian sign this contract before they will be allowed to participate in labs.  Students who do not participate will receive a score of MISSING (which is equivalent to a score of zero) for each lab they do not complete.  Missing labs will not be repeated.


Science is a hands-on laboratory class. However, science activities may have potential hazards. We will use some equipment that may be dangerous if not handled properly. Safety in the science classroom is an important part of the scientific process. To ensure a safe classroom, a list of rules has been developed and is called the Science Safety Contract. These rules must be followed at all times. Additional safety instructions will be given for each activity. No science student will be allowed to participate in science activities until this contract has been signed by both the student and a parent or guardian.
