Assignments missed due to absence:
According to the student handbook, students have 2 days to make up any work missed due to illness.
When a student absence occurs on a due date or a scheduled test date, the assignment will be due, and the test will be made up the day of return to class.
Students are responsible for retrieving missed work. Check with your teacher. It is not the teacher’s responsibility to track you down!
Assignments are expected to be turned in at the beginning of the class period the day that they are due.
Late work will be accepted for up to one week after the due date. There will be a 20% grade reduction on all late work. After one week, no credit will be given.
