Missed Work/Make-up Policy:
Students are responsible for makeup work when they return from an absence. If the student misses an assignment, it is the responsibility of the student to meet with the teacher to schedule an appropriate time to make up assignments. If a test, quiz, homework assignment, project, etc. is due on the day of the absence, the student is required to make up these items upon the first day of their return.
