HELPFUL WEBSITES



DUE DATES AND LATE WORK:

  • All work missed due to an excused absence must be made up by the student within a reasonable time, or receive zeros in work missed.  It is the student’s responsibility to make arrangements with the teacher for make-up work.

  • Work that is not submitted to the teacher on the assigned due date will not result in full credit. If a student is present in class, he/she is expected to turn in work at the time it is requested. Late work will be accepted up to three days after the due date and assessed a penalty of 10 points for each day up to three days only. 

  • All students may receive credit for completing makeup work after an excused absence. A student will be given as many days as he/she was absent from that class to make up assignments and tests. Teachers are not required to provide assignments to students prior to an absence.  If a student needs to complete an assignment that must be completed in the classroom, they should schedule a time with the teacher.
