  • 53. Borrowing<br />To borrow means that the person whom you borrowed from has given you explicit permission to borrow that item and that said item will be returned before the end of class.<br />I will allow students to borrow class necessities when I deem fit; however, if a student fails to ask permission FIRST, I will assume that student is stealing. <br />If a student does not return “borrowed” items, I will be very disappointed. If happens more than once the appropriate consequences will follow. <br />
