Absent Work Policy

Students have one extra day for every day they are absent to make up work. However, absent students are expected to approach me and set up an acceptable timetable for completion of work when gone for more than two days in a row or three days in a week. These agreements will be a compromise agreed upon by both parties. If the work is not turned in by the agreed upon date, it will suffer late penalties.

Late Work Policy

Work is considered late if it is not submitted electronically or in writing by the beginning of class on the due date. Any assignment suffers a 10% penalty for every day it is late. After 5 school days, the grade becomes a zero.

Activities Policy

If you are a member of a sport or activity and miss class, you are responsible for getting the work in on time. Leaving school early for an event means you must turn in the assignment before you leave or it is late. Coming in the next day without your homework for that day will suffer a late penalty. It is your responsibility to balance academics and extra-curricular activities.
